"Sometimes it did, other 
times it felt like he was 
rubbing sandpaper on 
my back." Before the 
process began, Wyatt 
said he watched the artist

change the ink and get

ancestry and my friend 
for the rest of my life," 
Wyatt said of his friend 
David Mayes, senior in 
history, who accomp- 
anied Wyatt to Fine 
Line. "It symbolizes the 
friendship between 
Dave and me. It is a 
friendship that is as

ne fad of the '90s made a more 
permanent fixture of itself than the 
Chia Pet and the pet rock. Planted 
under the skin at the depth of a 
dime, tattoos were there to stay. 
The tattoo craze ran full-force, and 
the reasons for the increase in popu- 
larity were varied. 

"Tattoos have been much more 
mainstream in the last couple of 
years, especially with students. It's 
just more socially acceptable now," 
said Teddie Fischer, tattoo artist at 
Fine Line tattoo studio in Topeka. 
"People are just now feeling that 
it's OK to have one." 

A wide variety of people de- 
cided to sit under the needle. 

"In our Junction City parlor, we 
get military personnel. However, 
most of our customers are just aver- 
age everyday people. About half 
are men and half are women," 
Fischer said. "In the last two years 
or so, we have seen 
more college students. 
In fact, fraternities and 
sororities will often 
have their letters 
placed on their 

Many tattoo de- 
signs were offered. 
Cartoon characters such as Bart 
Simpson, Calvin and Hobbes and 
theTasmanian Devil were popular 
choices. But many people designed 
their own. 

"A lot of people don't know 
what to expect when they come 
in," Fischer said. "They don't think 
that we'll have that many designs, 
but we have thousands on file to 
choose from. However, many do 
choose to design their own." 

J ohn Berberich, freshman in arts 
and sciences, got his tattoo at Fine 
Line. Berberich picked his tattoo 
in memory of one of his friends who 

had died. 

"I got a joker on a pole," he said. 
"It was the one my friend was going 
to get before he died." 

The average tattoo design took 
about 45 minutes to apply, but some 
designs took up to three hours. The 
amount of pain experienced de- 
pended on the tattoo's location. 

"As far as the pain, it is tolerable. 
It's not something you would sit 
still for under normal circum- 
stances," said Scott Schafer, tattoo 
artist at Fine Line. "The rib cage 
and the tailbone are the most pain- 
ful spots. There are a lot of nerve 
endings in these places. Most people 
put a lot of thought into it before 
they come in, and are committed to 
the process." 

Matt James, sophomore in jour- 
nalism and mass communications, 
said he wasn't prepared for the pro- 
cedure to be so painful. 

"It was excrutiating, ridiculous 
and miserable/' James said. 
"Everybody told me it 
wouldn't hurt. They lied." 

Some people were worried about 
the risk of AIDS involved in get- 
ting a tattoo, but Fine Line used 
steam to sterilize the equipment, 
the same procedure used in steriliz- 
ing surgical equipment. The tattoo 
as refusing to tattoo anyone under 
the age of 1 8 without parental con- 
sent, or anyone intoxicated. 

Fad or not, the tattoos were there 
to stay. Fischer said the increased 
popularity of tattoos made promot- 
ing them unnecessary. 

"We don't sell tattoos," Fischer 
said, "tattoos sell themselves."

urple balloons lined Poyntz Av- 
enue sidewalks. Little girls dressed 
in cheerleader uniforms, and little 
boys and adults flaunted K-State 
apparel. People filled the street to 
kickoff the fourth annual Purple 
Power Play on Poyntz. 

The festivities began on Sept. 
17, two days before the opening 
football game. Vendors roamed the 
street selling food, balloons and 
football tickets. Afterdonatingfood 
to the Flint Hills Breadbasket, fans 
had pictures taken with Willie 
Wildcat. Musical groups, ranging 
from country to old rock, performed. 
The scene was set for the pep rally. 

This year, Purple Power Play on 
Poyntz was extended 
togenerate more spirit. 

"We extended it to 
three days this year so 
we could keep every- 
one psyched up," said 
Jim Dailey, intern for 
KQLA-FM 103.9 ra- 
dio station. 

Power Play offered the commu- 
nity a way to show support for an- 
other football season. 

"Community support for Kan- 
sas State is excellent. This is a good 
example of how the community 
backs the University," said Laura 
Mitchell, senior in psychology. 

After performances by the 
Classy Cats, the marching band 
and the cheerleaders, Bill Snyder, 
head football coach, was intro- 
duced. The 1991 CoachoftheYear, 
who was present at the first Power 
Play, addressed a crowd twice as big 
as it had ever been. 

There was a lot of cheering when 
Snyder introduced the leaders of 
the football team. Brooks Barta, 
senior in education and team cap- 
tain, promised the team would work 
hard. He said if everyone did, they 
would win because "nobody has a 

heart like a Wildcat." 

The end of the pep rally signaled 
the beginning of the money toss. A 
thousand dollars worth of money 
was thrown off the top of the mall 
to a mob of people in front of the 
entrance. Along with the money, 
small purple and white footballs, 
orange basketballs and coupons 
were also thrown. 

Brian Underwood, freshman in 
park resources management, saw a 
small boy get knocked down when 
he was trying to reach an envelope 
of money near three older boys. 

Underwood caught an envelope 
and decided to give up his prize, but 
he didn't realize what it was. 

"The boy opened the envelope 
and there was $20 inside. I sure 

could have used that $20," 
Underwood said. 

Elmo and the Deadbeats played 
at the street dance the next evening 
for those who listened despite the 
chilly weather. A giant purple Wild- 
cat logo was painted on Poyntz 
Avenue in front of the mall. 

Saturday's activities began with 
a parade of high school bands, who 
marched along Poyntz Avenue from 
the City Park to the mall. 

After the parade, people deco- 
rated their cars to caravan to the 
football field. Participants received 
a free parking pass. 

The growing popularity of the 
football team caused a stir with the 
students, families and businesses. 
Their enthusiasm and support was 
evident at the Purple Power Play 
on Poyntz. 

"Next year, I'm going to tell 
people about it and take more people 
with me,"said Becky Busenbark, 
sophomore in biology.

T}^/1&" CAMPUS 

^fw earing purple t-shirts and 
macaroni necklaces, children be- 
tween the ages of 5-13 invaded 
campus last summer through Sum- 
mer Adventure, a day camp spon- 
sored by the Division of Continu- 
ing Education. 

The program started with a week 
long pre-session, followed by four 
two-week sessions. Dick Claussen, 
director of Summer Adventure, said 
about 80 students were enrolled in 
each session. 

Claudia Lawrence, program co- 
ordinator for Summer Adventure, 
said the program provided a change 
of pace for children so they didn't 
feel like they were in school. 

"We try to use the resources of 
the community and the campus," 
Lawrence said. "We try to give them 
something they wouldn't normally 
receive in school." 

Participants attended 45-minute 
activity sessions with children 
in their own age groups. 
Activities included physical 
education, art, drama, dance, 
sign language, music, math

and language arts, and were taught provided me and the children with 

grades. It also teaches the older 
children leadership skills because 
they help with the groups," Laytimi 
said. "The program benefits the chil- 
dren a great deal." 

Extravaganza, a time set aside 
for special activities, was held every 
afternoon. Activities included tour- 
ing a radio station, Derby Food 
Center and the horticulture de- 
partment. The children also had 
the chance to inspect a helicopter 
from Fort Riley. 

On some days, all age groups 
gathered together for Extravaganza. 
These featured guest speakers, tal- 
ent shows and dance parties at the 
Union Station. McGruff the Crime 
Dog appeared at one meeting. 

Karen Galloway, senior in el- 
ementary education, was a leader 
and counselor at the camp. She said 
there were always new activities 
that benefited both 
the children and the 

"Summer Adven- 
ture helped the chil- 
dren learn in a fun and 
different way. It was 
expression through 
drama, art and all of 
the activities," Gallo- 

by college students. Swimming les- 
sons, taught by certified instructors 
from University for Man, were also 
part of the program. 

Amy Laytimi, graduate teach- 
ing assistant in music and camp 
counselor, said many counselors 
were education majors. The camp 
provided them with the opportu- 
nity to gain teaching experience. 

"The program provides the chil- 
dren enrichment, without using 

a learning experience. I got to know 
the children. I was with them all 
day through the good, the bad, the 
happiness and the sadness. The best 
part was that I could be a kid again." 

Andrew Elmore, a 12-year-old 
from Manhattan, said he was en- 
rolled in four weeks of Summer 
Adventure. He said the program 
was more fun than school. 

"You learn, but you don't get the 
homework," Elmore said.

Fohn Fulkerson, a 1992 K-State 
graduate in horticulture, returned 
to school as a non-traditional stu- 
dent to learn to grow the unusual. 

After working seven years in 
sales, the former landscape archi- 
tecture major, purchased his own 

On his eight acres located east of 
Manhattan, Fulkerson started Pep- 
per Pond Farm. The pride of 
Fulkerson's farm, as the name indi- 
cated, was his peppers. 
The farm's 1,000 
plants, representing 30 
different varieties, were 
sold to restaurants, su- 
permarkets and farm- 
ers markets. 

"Peppers are an up- 
and-coming food," he 
said. "They are truly gaining in popu- 
larity. People will be cooking with 
chilli peppers more and more." 

The peppers were rated on dif- 
ferent levels, according to their heat. 
Each pepper was given a number 
from zero to 10, with 10 being the 
hottest. Pepper Pond Farm had ev- 
ery level of pepper, and Fulkerson 
said he grew the world's hottest 
pepper. It was the habanero pepper 
which had a rating of 1 0. Fulkerson 
said a bite as small as one-eighth of 
a dime would burn a taster's mouth. 

One of Fulkerson's favorite was 
his datil pepper sauce, Bottled Hell. 

"It is excellent on meat, tacos 
and corn chips," Fulkerson said. 
"The name, Bottled Hell, fits per- 
fectly because it is blasting hot." 

Fulkerson's commitment has 
earned the support of one observer. 

"He's dedicated to what he's 
doing," said Connie.Fulkerson's wife 
and K-State employee, "and he's 
dedicated to the organic method." 

A great deal of care was required 
to keep the peppers healthy. 

"It (the farm) is a time commit- 

ment," Fulkerson said. "It takes 
hundreds of hours to keep up with 
the peppers." 

Living in the country, the 
Fulkersons found they had differ- 
ent worries than in the city. 

"In town when it hails, you're 
worried about the roof or the car," 
Connie Fulkerson said. "Here, it's 
the vegetables." 

When thunderstorms ap- 
proached, Fulkerson was nervous. 

"To watch a crop destroyed in a 
matter of minutes is not a fun 
thing/' Fulkerson said. "It's 

given me a different perspective 
on what farmers go through." 

The time commitment and fi- 
nancial obligation made Fulkerson 
unsure of the farm's future. 

"When you work hard on some- 
thing, you hope there is a payoff," 
he said. "We went into this project 
blindly, and it has sure been a rich 

He hoped to continue farming 
on a part-time basis. He said the 
customer interaction was his favor- 
ite part of the job. 

"I have learned a lot from the 
customers, and I hope they have 
learned a lot about peppers," he 
said. "I sure hope that next year 
they don't ask, 'where 's the pepper 
man?' " 

Fulkerson said his education 
didn't stop after he received his 
diploma. He said here was a differ- 
ence between growing 10 plants in 
class and 1,000 plants on his farm. 

"I think I got a good education 
at K-State," he said. "But just be- 
cause you have a degree doesn't 
mean you know everything. You 
need to get your hands dirty and 
make mistakes."

Boris Yeltsin visited the family of Lajean Rau, senior in journalism and 
secondary education, during the summer of 1992. Lajean's brother, Bruce, 
senior in landscape architecture, and sister Darlene, sophomore in 
secondary education, also attended K-State. 

»^V ussian President Boris Yeltsin 
made a lot of friends in Kansas this 

He visited my family's farm as 
part of his trip to Kansas in mid- 
June after a successful trip to Wash- 
ington, D.C., which resulted in 
more than 30 agreements between 
Russia and the United States. While 
in Kansas, he also stopped at 
Wichita's Dold meat packing plant 
at Wichita State University. 

His message was the same every- 
where he went. 

"There will never be a war be- 
tween our two countries," Yeltsin 
said. "We are friends now." 

"I don't come to your country 
for handouts, but for partnership," 
he said atop a wooden flatbed trailer- 
stage at my family's farm. 

His commanding voice, ener- 
getic manner and frank speech 
wowed the crowd of about 400, 
made up mostly of friends of our 
family, farmers and representatives 
of the more than 20 farm organiza- 
tions that sponsored his stop at our 

His visit to our home began with 
a private meeting with the family. 
Hanked by politicians and digni- 
taries, including members of the 
Kansas congressional delegation, 
Gov. Joan Finney and the U.S. 
ambassador to Russia, Yeltsin and 
his wife, Naina, took an impromptu 
tour of our house. 

"It is true you live better than 
the president of Russia," he said, 
carefully looking over each room. 
"1 could only hope to have a refrig- 

erator this large in my own home." 

Yeltsin and my dad sat at our 
dinner table, looked at family pic- 
tures and talked "farm talk". He 
asked about crop yields, cattle 
we ight gain and implements, barely 
giving his interpreter time to trans- 

Yeltsin's eyebrows raised at the 
answers to his questions. 

"The wheat you grow comes 
from Russia, 1 am told," Yeltsin 
said, looking up from the table to 
the more than 15 people surround- 
ing it. "And now, your yields are 
three times what we grow there." 

Yeltsin said he had much to 
learn from my family and from other 
American farmers. 

"My people want to work, and

they have good minds," he said, 
putting his finger to his temple. 
"But they have been brainwashed 
for so many years. Now it can 
change. We will never go back." 

Yeltsin moved toward the couch 
for a picture with my family, duck- 
ing with a hearty laugh to avoid 
getting his white hair caught in the 
ceiling fan. 

My family gave the Yeltsins a 
framed photograph of our family, 
which was taken in a 
nearby wheat field. 

The Yeltsins presented my par- 
ents with a hand-painted, wooden 
tea set. 

"This is old Russian art," Yeltsin 
said. "My people have been doing 
this for hundreds of years." 

"You can use it for vodka or tea," 
he said, tipping one of the cups and 
getting a laugh. 

Sensing his discomfort, my dad 
motioned for Yeltsin to take his tie 
off. Yeltsin promptly pulled the tie 
over his head, laughing and thank- 
ing my dad. He had already shed his 
coat earlier in the day.

etly in the background most of the 
day, put the tie in her purse. 

When Yeltsin walked out into 
the Kansas heat, the circus began. 
Hundreds of people flocked around 
as my dad tried to continue the tour 
outside. But the up-close-and-per- 
sonal time was over. Yeltsin shook 
hands and spoke to the people. 
From a distance, he was as down-to- 
earth and compelling as he had 
been across our table. 

Yeltsin took the wheel of the 
combine, waving his arms for the 
crowd and media to clear the way. 

Naina Yeltsin looked on with 
wonied eyes. 

"He does not know how to drive 

this," she said. 

Yeltsin spoke atop the trailer- 
stage to the crowd that had been 
waiting several hours in the sum- 
mer sun to see him. 

"I know now that I made the 
right decision when I picked Kan- 
sas to come to," Yeltsin said, wav- 
ing his arms, then putting his hand 
to his heart. "I will tell you, Kansas 
has the best freedom, the best wheat 
and the best farmers in the world." 
When asked by a 
television reporter 
what he would take 
back to his country 
from the visit, Yeltsin 
motioned around the 
farm and said, "Every- 
thing — togetherwith 
the family." 

Yeltsin stayed until he had only 
1 minutes to make it to McConnell 
Air Force Base for his 3:30 p.m. 
departure to Ontario, Canada, 
where he was meeting with the 
Canadian government. 

As the Yeltsins were rushed to- 
ward the waiting motorcade, they 
looked into the crowd for members 
of my family, reaching to shake our 
hands and thank us again. Yeltsin 
hugged my dad and disappeared 
into the limousine. 

But before it could pull away, 
my mom appeared with an iced tea, 
which she quickly passed through 
an open window. 

"They're so hot," she said. "I 
could tell they needed something 
to drink." 

A half an hour after Yeltsin left, 
about 15 of the 400 people who had 
stood in our yard remained. Cater- 
ers cleaned up, and Secret Service 
agents buzzed around. 

"All that preparation, and he 
was here for barely an hour," my 
dad said. 

He and my brothers changed 
into their work clothes and imme- 
diately headed back to the field. 
The visit had interrupted harvest, 
the busiest time of a farmer's year.

\ I ammering signs into yards 
seemed like a dirty prank kids would 
play, but for Michelle Smith, sopho- 
more in political science, it was 
serious business. As a candidate for 
the Kansas Senate, Smith used the 
signs to help promote her political 

"It was the Democratic Party 
that asked me to run," she said. "I 
had done some work on another 
candidate's campaign, and they 
encouraged me to run." 

After accepting the ballot posi- 
tion, Smith started her political 
career. With past campaign experi- 
ence, she understood how to handle 
her own. Change was the driving 
force behind her campaign against 
Lana Oleen, R-Manhattan. 

"I want to see significant 
changes. I want to see a 

government that is responsive 
to the needs and wants of the 
Smith said. 


Smith saw changes in her 
lifestyle, as she was challenged with 
the task of striking a balance be- 
tween working on homework and 
her campaign. 

"There was an OK balance, but 
it depended on the day. Some days 
it was easier than others," Smith 
said. "I devoted mornings to classes 
and school work, and afternoons 
were filled with campaign work." 

Friends and family were instru- 
mental in helping Smith run and 
promote her campaign. Many of 
her friends worked with her by 
handing out campaign materials 
and planning speaking engage- 
ments, but her main supporter was 
her husband. 

"My husband helped a lot. He 
arranged speaking engagements, put 

together and distributed brochures 
and also put up signs," she said. 
"Everybody had name tags, and they 
all agreed that his should say, 'emo- 
tional support.' " 

While growing up in 
Leavenworth, Smith was exposed 
to the military community as well 
as the civilian side of life. 

"I think I am tuned in to main- 
stream society," she said. "I grew up 
in a single-parent home. I've expe- 
rienced the hardships of divorce on 
families, but I've seen the positive 
aspects, too." 

During her four years intheU.S. 
Army, Smith learned about gov- 
ernment and society. She was also 
exposed to international life during 
her three-year tour in Germany. 
"I've been involved 
in both sides of a mili- 
tary community. I un- 
derstand what the sol- 
diers need and what 
the civilians need," 
she said. "Plus, I am 
involved in the K- 
State community. 
With this knowledge, I feel that I 
could best serve the people of this 

The campaign swallowed up 
much of Smith's time during the 
fall semester, but she said it was 
worth it. Although she lost the 
election to Oleen, Smith said she 
gained knowledge about the U.S. 
political system. 

"It was definitely a learning ex- 
perience,"Smithsaid. "I would defi- 
nitely make some changes next 
time, but I learned something and 
that's what matters." 

Despite her defeat, Smith said 
she would run for office again. 

"I plan to stay in Kansas and 
probably in this community," Smith 
said. "I would run again if I had the 
chance and the money."

I ans' anticipation ended as coun- 
try-music singer Garth Brooks 
stepped on Bramlage Coliseum's 
stage Sept. 12. Brooks performed 
for a sold-out crowd of 13,300 fans. 

After witnessingproblems other 
states had with crowds waiting in 
long lines to buy Brooks' tickets, 
the Bramlage staff decided to sell 
the tickets through a mail order 
and lottery system. The lottery was 
for students who didn't receive tick- 
ets through the mail. It was success- 
ful, as all 2,800 students who went 
walked away with a pair of concert 

"I think the lottery system 
worked extremely well," said 
Charles Thomas, director of 
Bramlage Coliseum. 

"It was a lot of work for my staff 
We had enough ticket requests 
that we could have done 
three sold-out shows." 

Some students managed to buy 
tickets as close as three hours before 
the concert. A section had been 
reserved for stage equipment, but 
ended up not being used. Brooks 
opened the section up to accom- 
modate an additional 150 fans. 


"We (my roommates and I) had 
planned on having a party because 
none of us had tickets. While we 
were getting ready, we heard on the 
radio they were offering behind- 
the-stage tickets," said Joely 
Callaway, senior in marketing. "We 
jumped into the car going 50 mph 
to Bramlage. I could not believe we 
got there in one p iece and were able 
to get tickets." 

A few students had been willing 
to do almost anything to get tick- 
ets. A Topeka country music radio 
station, WIBW-FM 97.3, awarded 
free tickets to fans who performed 
the craziest acts. Some fans swal- 
lowed worms and made human sun- 
daes of themselves trying to win the 

Fans were anxious 
to see Brooks, but be-

"Seeing the whole coliseum do- 
ing the wave really got my blood 
flowing," said Jennifer Keller, 
sophomore in journalism and mass 
communications. "It gave the crowd 
something to do."

The crowd went wild when Brooks ap- 
peared through an opening in the stage floor. 
Brooks opened his act with the song "Ro- 
deo" and performed popular songs from all of 
his albums, including the unreleased album, 
"The Chase." Brooks entertained the crowd 
with "Friends in Low Places," and encour- 
aged the crowd to sing along. He also intro- 
duced his most recent single, "We Shall be 
Free," which had gospel overtones. The 
crowd enthusiastically responded to the song, 
which pleased Brooks. 

"To get that kind of a response for a song 
you've never heard before really makes a 
person feel good," Brooks said. 

The crowd responded to all of Brooks' 
songs throughout the evening as they swayed, 
sang, clapped and yelled. 

"He's a true entertainer," said Louis Funk, 
junior in civil engineering. "He's there to 
play for the people." 

During the concert, Brooks addressed 
rumors circulating about his retirement. 
Brooks said he planned to take a vacation to 
spend time with his wife, Sandy, and their 
daughter, Taylor Mayne Pearl. He said he 
didn't want his fans to be angry with him if 
he chose not to return to the music industry. 

"I don't think he's made up his mind 
about retirement. I just think he's trying to 
prepare his fans," Funk said. "It will be a great 

loss if he does decide to retire, but that's his 
choice. He needs to do what's best for him." 

After Brooks had finished performing, 
the audience erupted into a roar of protest 
that brought Brooks back on stage for an 
encore performance. Brooks sang another 
version of "Friends in Low Places." He also 
sang a rendition of the Georgia Satellites' 
hit, "Keep Your Hands to Yourself." 

Brooks proved he deserved his Enter- 
tainer of the Year award as he swung into the 
crowd hanging from a rope. He also took one 
fan's camera, reclined on the stage and took 
a picture of himself with the camera's owner. 

Another fan had her picture taken with 
Brooks during the three hours she spent with 

"After the concert was over, I got to go 
backstage and meet him," said Kelli Darting, 
junior in hotel and restaurant management. 
"It was great, but I saw how exhausted he was. 
I knew then his career really was using all of 
his energy." 

Despite Brooks' exhaustion, Darting said 
he had to deal with 250 screaming fans 
wanting autographs. Darting said she real- 
ized the kind of person he was off the stage. 

"It was a very exciting experience, but 
once it was over I got to really thinking about 
it," she said. "I realized he's just an ordinary 
man, like you and me, with a talent and 
kindness he uses in just the right way to 
touch people's hearts."

lelane Olgeirson, senior in el- 
ementary education, said she al- 
ways wanted to become a teacher. 

"I've had several different jobs 
and in almost all of them I worked 
with kids," she said. 

Olgeirson was a non-traditional 
student who waited several years 
before entering college. 

"My very first day of college was 
on my 36th birthday," Olgeirson 
said. "This really young kid sat next 
to me in my class and I thought, 
'My God, I could be this boy's 
mother.' I decided then I would 
never think of other students as 
anything but my peers." 

Olgeirson's husband and three 
daughters supported her wish to go 
back to school. She and her hus- 
band decided she needed to be a 
full-time student. 

"He's been after me to go back 
for years," Olgeirson said. "We 
decided that if I wanted to 
graduate before ouroldestdaugh- 
ter was ready for college, I 
should go full-time." 

Nancy Bolsen, director of 
FENIX Adult Student Services, said 
a quarter of the total student enroll- 
ment included non-traditional stu- 

"Our definition of a non-tradi- 
tional student is 25 or older, or 
married and under 25 ," Bolsen said. 
"Most of them are in the 25-39 age 
group, but some have been in their 
50s, 60s and 70s who simply appre- 
ciate life-long learning," Bolsensaid. 
"Some, and this is the rarity, have 
been in their 70s and 80s, and have 
come back to get their degrees." 

The reasons for people return- 
ing to college varied. 

"The variety (of reasons) has to 
do with some wanting to upgrade 

their skills, such as teacher 
accreditdation, or they want a ca- 
reer change," Bolsen said. "Many of 
them come back because of a change 
in life circumstances like divorce." 
Some found it difficult to go 
back to school , but there were groups 
for non-traditional students that 
offered help, including the Non- 
Traditional Student Association 
and FENIX. 

"We have child care informa- 
tion, travel information such as ride 
sharing, and ways to leave emer- 
gency numbers where a parent can 
be reached," Bolsen said. "We also 
have general information on Man- 
hattan for those non-traditional 
students who move here to go to 

Decisions to go back to school 
can also be hard on families. 
Olgeirson's youngest 
daughter did not like 
her mother going to 

"She missed hav- 
ing me there," 
Olgeirson said. "I'd 
had time to do those 
extra things, like ex- 
tra cooking and sew- 
Olgeirson felt earning her de- 
gree was important, and put extra 
effort into it by taking additional 
classes. A degree in education re- 
quired 126 hours, but Olgeirson 
went beyond that to earn hours in 
social science and history, in addi- 
tion to her main area of concentra- 
tion in German. With busy class 
schedules, Olgeirson sacrificed time 
with her family. 

"There are times when I miss 
having that time (at home)," 
Olgeirson said. "My oldest daugh- 
ter once told me she knew that 
what I was doing was important, 
but sometimes not in school be- 
cause she wanted the old mom

I visited with them, shared my be- 
liefs and my aspect on what life is 
about. This helped me learn more 
about my own beliefs." 

Church youth groups also gave 
students the opportunity to meet 
those with similar beliefs and share 
social experiences.

to leave. 

"The cancer has slowed me down 
tremendously this semester. I 
thought I would be teaching one 
more semester or even one more 
year," said David von Riesen, re- 
tired photography instructor. "I 
have had cancer for three years

von Riesen, 74, retired from K- 
State for the second time. He re- 
tired the first time from the head of 
Photographic Services in 1984, a 
position he served for 21 years. But 
his retirement was short, as Harry 
Marsh, professor of journalism, 
asked von Riesen if he would be 
interested in teaching a course in 

"And that's how I got started," 
von Riesen said. 

He decided to teach his students 
more than just snapshot photogra- 

"Since Photography I is an elec- 
tive course, a lot of students thought 
it would be easy," von Riesen said. 
"They found out that to really un- 
derstand photography, ittakes more 
than just taking snapshots. They 
learned about the various uses and 
various functions of a camera." 

Students also learned the me- 
chanics of processing and printing 

By Shane Keyser 

their pictures, as well as different 
camera techniques. 

"He was a good guy to have 
teaching the course. He was pa- 
tient when he was teaching the 
more complicated and technical 
side of photography," said Jeff 
Tuttle, a K-State graduate. "He of- 
fered a lot of encouragement so the 
students wouldn't get discouraged." 

Students learned through a se- 
ries of assignments that emphasized 
capturing creative shots. 

"They had five to six diverse 
assignments, other than what the 
students were taking pictures of or- 
dinarily," von Riesen said. "They 
didnight views, panning, depth-of- 
field exercises and found out what 
different exposures would do. This 
provided interest and creativity 
within the person's view of using a 
camera as more than just a snap- 
shot camera." 

The scope of the course went 
beyond textbook information. 

"With all of my experience in 
commercial and portrait photogra- 
phy, I was able to talk to them about 
photography and give them infor- 
mation they wouldn't ordinarily 
find in textbooks," von Riesen said. 

Most of his teaching hinged on 
a theory he developed early in his 
photographic career — to think 
and to see. 

"I started with an 8 x 10 view 
camera," von Riesen said. "We 
didn't just go out and take snap- 
shots with a camera like that. You 
had to set the camera up on a tri- 
pod, look through the ground glass 

and through the lens to focus. 

"Then you composed what you 
wanted and didn't have any surplus 
showing. If you did, you moved in 
closer or backed up to get the whole 
scene. You didn't take the time to 
shootsix, eight or 10 exposures. You 
shot one, maybe two," he said. 

von Riesen said his theory devel- 
oped out of this experience. 

"That is where I got my whole 
idea of thinking and seeing. We had 
to think exactly of what we wanted 
and we had to see what we were 
going to get," he said. 

But teaching others to think and 
see was hard for von Riesen and 
even more difficult for the students 
to learn. 

"I still feel that none of us have it. 
We've got to develop that sense of 
thinking and seeing," von Riesen 
said. "We need to take time to look. 
I think that we've lost the ability to 
feel and think and see. Some are 
born with it, some can see what it is 
and what they can do with it. They 
are good thinkers. So many of us 
have to develop that ability to see 
beyond the surface." 

After years of experience, von 
Riesen was still mastering his tech- 
nique of thinking and seeing. Al- 
though he retired again, he won't 
give up photography. 

"I have ideas for what I'd like to 
do. As I walk around I see things 
that would be nice to photograph," 
he said. "I visualize them in my 
mind as to what they'd be in a 
photograph and keep my mind ac- 
tive that way."

Denise and Stacy Lacy, have been mixing cbflege and marriage for more than 
two years. Denise, senior in elementary education, and Stacy, senior in 
computer engineering, shared household duties, but since Stacy liked to cook, 
Denise sometimes ended up doing the dishes.(Photo by Margaret Clarkin)

• A Aarried students,, like other college students attended classes and 

worked part-time jobs. But beyond the surface, they shared a commitment 
of love and respect and supported each other through difficulties. •'■:;•••'■ 
• : • , "Marriage lets me share* my problems .and excitement with someone 
when I have a good day," said Stacy Lacy, senior in computer engineering. 
"You can't come home to hug your roomie, but you can always nug your 
wife." • . 

In addition, his wife Denise, senior in elementary education, said it was ' • 

- cheaper to live together because of combined supplies and divided costs. 
Mark and Amy Barnett, sophomore in business administration and 
junior in elementary education, respectively, agreed with the Lacys. 

"Rather than paying for two places, we consolidated to only one rent 
payment," Amy said. 

Mark said it all balanced out. 

• "We do better on money since the utilities aren't so expensive," Mark 
said. "We buy more food, though, so it evens out." 

There were disadvantages to marriage, too. 

"Since we're both in college, there is not a lot of money," Denise said. 
"We're poor because we only work part.-time." 

Another concern for the Lacys was starting a family. Stacy said they 
decided to wait until they were out of college to have children so they 
could build a solid foundation and establish their careers. 

"Our cat is out child right now. We don't want to have children until 

.. we finish school, which is another two years forme," Amy said. "It would 

• . be hard, and there's a lot we want to do before we have children. He wants 

to have a whole football team of children, but I'm thinking probably two 

or three." . . 

•'.:'■;'•'■.: Besides concerns of money and children, neither couple had conflicts 

about spending time together. 

"See ing each other works out well because We are at class, working from 
8 a.m.-5 p.m. or at extracurricular activities every day," Denise said. 

The Lacys agreed that difficulties occurred from'stress. 

"I encourage him and he encourages me. I give support and a helping 
hand to help him through when he's having a hard time," Denise said. 

Mark and Amy said their schedules were easier this year, allowing more 
time to study together or visit family. But there were also responsibilities 
to be divided. 

. . ' "Mark cooks, as well as vacuums and does laundry. I do the dishes, dust 
and fold laundry," Amy said. "It is good to share duties. Normally, women 
have to do it, but we share the responsiblities." 

Both couples agreed that marriage was a positive choice in their lives. 

• "I think the big thing is that if you really care about each other and love 
each other, you should get married," Stacy said. "Everything else will work

Concealed iDEmmEs 

A ■ , 

A. Xstreetlight illuminated two men casually walking down the side- 
walk. When they passed a crowded restaurant, customers glanced at them . 
and then resumed eating. The same men passed by the window again — 
holding hands. Open mouths, angry stares, and a booming voice yelling 
insults accompanied their stroll. This was common in the unisexual dating 
world t as homosexuals were forced to hide their sexual preferences or be 
subjected to varying degrees of public harassment. '.'■• 

"I'm an open person, but I know I can't hold my boyfriend's hand in the 
. mall," said Robert Coyle, junior in arts and sciences and 1991-92 Bisexual 
and Gay and Lesbian Society president. "If I do, I'll get a negative response. . 
People stare, get all hostile and verbalize their comments. That really takes 
away from being comfortable and enjoying time together." 

Beth (not her real name) concealed her homosexuality out of fear for 
her job. When her previous employer found out she was a lesbian, she was 
fired. But keeping her affection for her girlfriend under wraps wasn't easy. 

"As I get older or crazier, one or the other, it's been easier to show my 
affection in public. It's kind of scary because you don't know .what people . 
will do to you," Beth said. • 

Although publically showing affection was more difficult for homo- 
sexuals than heterosexuals, there were similarities in how they met. 

"Homosexuals go to bars in Topeka, Wichita, and Kansas City to meet 
people — just like heterosexuals do. We meet people through organiza- 
tions or at parties," Beth said. ■" 

Coyle said it was easier for him to reveal his homosexuality at college 
than at his parents' home. 

"I've moved out and am getting an identity of my own," he said. "My 

parents have less control over me here. If they would break apart, I don't 

have to live with them and they can't kick me Out. It's the same way with 

. friends. If they don't like it, I don't have to see them around anymore." 

But Coyle said he found acceptance oh campus. 

"There's a lot of acceptance here,"-Coyle said. "Groups and organiza- 
tions allow gay students to get to know one another, find positive role 
. models and help those who want to learn more about gay lifestyles." 

Some aspects of unisexual relationships Were complicated. Legal 
■ problems often hindered serious commitments, making common bonds 
such as marriage and child rearing difficult. Beth was involved in a 
relationship and considered marriage a major commitment. 

"I've been in a serious relationship for eight months. We are planning 
on getting married with a ceremony in a gay church," .Beth said. "My 
partner and I are both Christians, so to have a church recognize us as a 
couple is a strong bond. I would also like to have a child. This presents a 
• problem in itself. If two parents of the same sex are raising a child, when 
this child goes to school, he or she might be teased. I hope-by the time I 
have children everyone will be more accepting."

Keeping Family Ties 

If 1/ hen Stacy and Tracy Runriion called home to complain about 
their roommate, they dialed the same number. The twin brother and sister 
lived together at college, and often called home to discuss problems with 
their mother. 

"My mom must go. crazy when she has her twins yelling at her on the 
phone," said Stacy, senior in secondary education. "We call when the . 
other is gone to discuss our complaints. She never tells me what Tracy has 
to say, but suggests I be patient. She never takes sides and only offers 

Stacy said their mother reminded them to rely on each other and 
accept each other's differences. Tracy, senior t in fine arts, said learning to 
' get along with his twin helped him deal with others. . 

"Living together with our differences helps us compromise and under- 
stand other people," Tracy said. "I think because we are so different — and 
we're even related — that we realize other people have differences, too. 
It seems the people we love the most are the ones we treat the worst." 

The twins felt comfortable being roommates. 

"It seems natural living together since we are twins and the same age. 
We shared the same things through high school and came to the same 
college," said Tracy. 

Stacy said arguments occasionally surfaced- • 

"We say the same things, but with a different viewpoint," Stacy said. 
"We argue about stupid little things. Since there isn't anyone else to argue 
with, we take our frustrations out on each other." 

Even with the arguments, the twins said they enjoyed living together. 

"It is nice to come home to someone to share with," Tracy said. "We 
are also used to arguing, and it is easier to make up." 

Brothers Dave and Jim Randall also lived together. They became 
roommates after Jim, sophomore in agribusiness, completed four years of 
service in the Marines. 

"When he (Jim) returned, he didn't know anyone and decided to live 
with me and his best friend," said Dave, senior in fine arts. 

Besides being roommates and brothers, the two were also friends. 

"We do things together on weekends, so we have more of a friendship. 
* We go to parties or football games," said Jim. 

Like the Runnion twins, the Randall brothers also had some argu- 
ments: -. . 

"We can fight and still make up," Dave said. "Since we lived together 
before, we know how to make up." 

By being roommates, the siblings gained a better understanding of each 
other. . : • 

"We know each other better than anyone else, but when it comes down 
to the bottom line, we're family, and we can always rely on each other," 
Stacy said.

Backpacking with Baby 

s ; - 

K-^itting for countless hours in small desks wasn't a favorite student 
activity, but for pregnant students, squeezing two people comfortably into 
. the same spot was an even greater challenge. 

Dana Sprinkle, senior in elementary education, was a pregnant full- 
time student who - had a hard time finding a comfortable way to sit. 

"I couldn't lean over my desk the way I used to. I had to sit straight up. 
It was hard to read that way and it was uncomfortable," Sprinkle said. 

Michelle Shafer, graduate teaching assistant in public speaking, had to 
sit sideways in the classroom desks-. • 

"I could barely fit into those tiny desks. It was awful. Plus, if I dropped 
anything I couldn't lean over to -pick it up. It was hell," she said. 

Along with having to cope with the desks, Shafer had trouble carrying 
her books to campus. "I liked walking to campus when it was nice out, but 
into my third trimester I couldn't carrymy backpack anymore. I would end 
up with really bad.back spasms. My husband and I had to make arrange- 
ments for him to bring my books to school," Shafer said. 

Besides dealing with these circumstances, Chrystal Winston, sopho- 
more in construction science, had trouble sitting for long periods of time. 
"The circulation would go out of my legs and my back would hurt 
during class. That made it really hard for me to sit in class," she said. "I 
looked forward to class breaks because I could move around. Plus, it was 
a great form of exercise for me." 

To help cope with some of the anxieties and problems they faced 
during their pregnancy, the women developed strong support networks 
• within their family and friends. . ". 

"At first I was concerned about how my husband would feel about my 
being pregnant. But this pregnancy made us happier and it also brought 
us closer together. Our friends and families, were very supportive of our 
" decision," Sprinkle said. "Their support helped me to overcome my . 
anxiety about having a baby while I was still in school." 

Sprinkle said most professors were understanding of her situation. 
"I told most of my professors right away that I was pregnant. I wanted ' 
them to know that I wasn't being rude and leaving in the middle of class. 
They were really understanding," Sprinkle said. 
• . . As for student reactions, Sprinkle said that they were all positive. She 

said there was something about a baby that made everyone happy. 
. " . "I would go to class and my friends would ask me how I was feeling. 
They were as excited about the baby as I was," Sprinkle said. "They would 
even take notes and collect handouts for me when I couldn't be there." 
'•■'."• All three women continued their schooling after their babies were 
, born. Some sacrifices were made, but the parents felt they were worth it. 

"I was supposed to student teach in the spring, but my husband and I , 
• decided that I should j ust take an extra semester instead of pushing myself. 
. It was better for my health and the baby's," Sprinkle said.

Three's Company 


"ome off-campus students came home to more than the traditional 
roommate each night. A few apartments housed co-ed roommates, with 
two females and one male living together. 

Kathy Wasko, j unior in journalism and mass communications, Melissa 
Russell, junior in environmental design, and Bryan Kutz, senior in hotel 
and restaurant management, decided to room together. 

"Bryan is only going to be here for one semester, and he didn't want to 
try and find an apartment that had a one-semester lease," Wasko said. 

Wasko and Kutz were dating and had been for the past four years. 

"We are very compatible and have similar personalities," Wasko said. 
"Melissa's personality is different from ours, but we all get along anyway." 

Russell didn't mind living with Kutzbecause the three of them had 
been friends for a long time, Wasko said. Russell's boyfriend also didn't 
mind, and Wasko said that the four of them double dated sometimes. 

"Having Brian live here has been good because he helps pay for the 
rent," Wasko said. "He also is pretty good about cleaning up after himself." 

Randy Oliver, senior in arts and sciences, Heather Stayton, senior in 
pre- veterinary medicine, and Chanc Vanwinkle, senior in pre-veterihary 
medicine, also tried. co-ed living. The three students all met in class. 

"I started dating one of the girls, and so I decided to live with her and 
her roommate," Oliver said. .-■•■■ 

The three roommates split the chores and picked a day to clean. 

"It is fair this way, because we all do our share of the work," Oliver said. 

He said his parents did not like the idea of him living with females, but 
the anangement was financially convenient. 

"It is saving me money, so I'm going to stay for a while," Oliver said. 

Ginger Hicks, junior in journalism and mass communications, and 
Laura Koerth, freshman in human ecology, shared an apartment with 
Dave Haas,' junior in accounting. - ' ' 

Hicks said that she loved having a guy around the apartment. 

"Dave repairs broken appliances and other things in the apartment," 
Hicks said. "It's also good to have a guy around for safety reasons." 

Haas, a transfer student from the University of Kansas, was a friend of 
the two females. He didn't know many people in Manhattan, but had met 
Hicks through her sister. Neither Hick's nor Kocrth's boyfriends or 
parents cared that they had a male roommate. 

"I guess we're old enough now that we're trustworthy," Hicks said. 

She said they got along fine, but their schedules were so different that 
they hardly saw each other. 

Hicks said living with a male was not much different from living with 
a female. ..•;',•* •..'.'• 

"There are some things I can't do, such as walk around in next-to- 
nothing," Hicks said. "Our conversations are. different, too. For the most 
part, we just sit around, watch television and study."

Race Relations 


A Ac 

Loving from California to Kansas was a little scary for Kyli Kenyon, 
sophomore in fine arts. Not only was the atmosphere different, but she 
didn't know if people would accept her Thai boyfriend of three years. 

To her surprise, her new friends easily accepted him. She told them 
about her boyfriend, who was serving in the Air Force in Nebraska, after 
she was invited to a friend's party. 

"I asked her if it. was all right if I brought him along," Kenyon said. 
"After she agreed* I told her that he was Thai. She said, 'who cares.' " 

Kenyon wasn't the only one who found it easy to date someone from 
a different race. Lea Caffrey, senior in civil engineering, had been dating 
a Vietnamese man for four years. She met Jonathan Nguyen, senior in 
business, through a group of friends her first yearof college. Caffrey said 
she didn't have any apprehension about dating him. ':'.: 

"I've had Vietnamese friends since high school. It just seemed natural 
(to date him)," Caffrey said. 

Although Caffrey was worried about how her parents would react, she 
said they approved of the relationship. 

"It (telling them) wasn't as bad "as I thought it would be. My parents 
love him," Caffrey said. 

With parental approval, Nguyen and Caffrey introduced her younger 
sister to a mutual Vietnamese friend. The -two of them developed a 
relationship, too. 

Children of mixed marriages had advantages of learning two cultures. 
Though Nguyen had lived in the United States since he was eight years 
old, he still practiced his culture and planned to pass it on to his children. 

"When we have kids, they will know both Vietnamese and English. 
He's trying to teach me some Vietnamese now," Caffrey said. 

Kim Foxworthy, a teacher at the KSU Child [Development Center, 
said students have learned to look past skin color as a way of classifying 
people. Foxworthy said the students in her class did not refer to a child as 
being black or white, but as the one with the longhair, the purple shirt or 
the blue hat. 

Neither Kenyonxior Caffrey .were worried about their children having 
to face prejudice. .• • 

"I don't think it matters anymore. All I know is our children will be 
beautiful," Kenyon said. 

Prejudice was not a problemfor Pakistani Salah Ali, senior in mechani- 
cal engineering, either. The problems he incurred with his American 
.girlfriend were ones that were common in relationships. 

"The biggest problem we have is she doesn't like the stubble on my 
face," Ali said- "Her mother loves me more than my .mother." 

Both Kenyon and Caffrey agreed that skin color did not matter in a 

''The thing that matters is the personality, not the race," Kenyon said.

Love on the line 


If I see you next to never, how can we say forever? 

Wherever you go, whatever you do, 

I will be right here waiting for you. 

"tudents involved in long-distance relationships ofteri felt their love 
lives were a line from Richard Marx's song, "Right Here Waiting." 

"It's hard, but if you love someone it's worth it," said Kendall Hart, 
freshman in arts arid sciences, whose boyfriend lived in Costa Rica. 

Hart met her boyfriend through her high school Spanish teacher when 
she went to Costa Rica a year and a half ago. 

• Because they lived in different countries, visiting each other was costly. 
A round-trip ticket to Costa Rica cost $6O0-$7OO, cutting their visiting 
time to a minimum, making the telephone an important part of their 
relationship. Hart said a call cost $ 1 per minute, so they only talked to each 
other once a month for 30 minutes. 

Hart said that the most economical form of communication was 
writing one to two letters a week. 

"It cost a stamp a page and I usually write four to five pages," Hart said. 

Although her boyfriend was not as far away as Costa Rica, Janell 
McElroy, junior in elementary education, understood the tribulations of 
long-distance relationships McElroy 's boyfriend attended the University 
of Missouri. 

"Actually, there are pros and cons (to a long-distance relationship)," 
McElroy said. "It's good because it tests your relationship. It's not easy, but 
'you learn trust. The bad part is that it puts a lot of stress on when you do 
see him, because you feel everything must go perfectly." 

Mike Olds, senior in journalism and mass communications, believed 
there were no benefits in dating someone not in the same location. 

"There is nothing good about it," Olds said. "The bad thing is that I 
never see her." • • 

Olds and his girlfriend, Colen Juwitt, met in Vermont where they 
worked together. Olds was a December graduate, andsaid he was ready to 
leave K-State. 

"I'm ready to get out of here and be with her," Olds said. "She makes 
it harder for me to wait to get out of here. I am ready to get.6n with my life 
with her." . , • .' : 

For some students, long-distarice relationships were more difficult to 
get accustomed to than others. Hallie Walker, senior in elementary 
education, dated her boyfriend for four years before he left for Chicago. 

"I spent so much time with him. It was like I lost my best friend," Walker 

Walker said she didn'clike the stress of a long-distance relationship. : 

"In a relationship you have to work hard anyway, but with the.distance, 
it's twice as hard," Walker said.

V 'e arrived on campus like an 
everyday man, revealing his friend- 
liness as he spent time between 
meetings talking to students. 

Bernard Shaw, chief anchor for 
the Cable News Network, visited 
campus Nov. 19, a day before he 
was to deliver the 94th Landon 
Lecture. Shaw spent the extra day 
meeting with students, faculty and 
administrators. He also went to 
Ogden Elementary School and gave 
a presentation to second-graders. 

The next day, Shaw spoke to a 
capacity crowd of 1,700 people in 
McCain Auditorium. He addressed 
America's attitude toward women 
and said sexism hurts the entire 

"We in this country are not put- 
ting on the field all of 
our players," Shaw 
said. "We can't win 
this fight unless we 
change the attitude of 
women in this nation." 

Shaw said the 
negative attitude of 
women surfaced in the 
questioning of Anita 
Hill, who made alle- 
gations of sexual 
harrassment against 
Clarence Thomas 
when he was a Supreme Court 
Justice nominee. 

"Regardless of your opinion of 
how the all-male members of the 
judiciary committee comported 
themselves in the confirmation 
hearings of Supreme Court Justice 
Clarence Thomas last fall," Shaw 
said, "the manner in which law 
Professor Anita Hill was questioned 
and treated had a profoundly cata- 
lytic and explosive impact on poli- 
tics and American women. The 
nation will never be the same." 

Shaw said the American public 

proved they were beginning to re- 
alize the importance of women in 
politics by voting women into gov- 
ernment positions. In the 1992 elec- 
tion, 48 women were elected to the 
U.S. House of Representatives and 
six women were elected to the U.S. 

"In Washington, before elec- 
tion night, Mrs. Quentin Burdick 
of North Dakota, Barbara Mikulski 
of Maryland and Nancy Kassebaum 
of Kansas were surrounded in one 
of the most exclusive male-oriented 
clubs in this country ," he said. "Now 
they have company." 

Shaw said sexism was not lim- 
ited to government positions, but 
existed in all areas of the work 

"Women now constitute nearly 
50 percent of the United States 
work force," he said. "Yet, 
where they work full time, 
women barely earn an average 
of 75 cents of the dollar 
taken home by their male co- 

He also said compared to men, 
many female employees were not 
given equal opportunities to suc- 
ceed in their careers. 

"The Center for Creative Lead- 
ership says on the average, nine out 
of 10 female managers are pushed 
into staff jobs such as human re- 
sources and public relations — po- 
sitions that do not lead to the top of 
corporate America," Shaw said. 
"Presently, fewer than 6 percent of 
all the top executives in the United 
States are female."

Continued from page 5 1 

Sexism only hurts the entire 
nation's competitiveness in inter- 
national markets, Shaw said. 

"As this (sexism) happens each 
day in our cities and each day in our 
states, each day we as a nation of 
people suffer," he said. "When this 
great nation suffers, we lose an- 
other step in competition because 
we are failing to use fully our most 
precious talent and resource — our 
own people." 

He said some corporations were 
starting to change their attitudes 
toward women, but were changing 
too slowly. 

"Some companies and work ex- 
ecutives are acting with conscience 
to change the way the work place 
and society treat women," he said. 
"Some, not a majority." 

Shaw said discrimination against 
women not only occured on the job 
and in salaries, but also in health 

"Heart disease is the number 
one killer of American women," 
Shaw said. "But according to stud- 
ies, heart disease goes undetected 
in women until it is virtually too 
late. As a result, 49 percent of 
women suffering heart attacks die 
within one year, compared with 3 1 
percent of men." 

Research in health-related is- 
sues also revealed sexism, as more 
money was spent researching how 
diseases affected men than how the 
same diseases affected women. 

"Over the years, billions more 
research dollars have gone into 
studying heart disease among men 
than women, especially women 
over 65," Shaw said. "That is a 
damned outrage." 

Sexism also exists in television 
news, he said. 

"There are men over age 50 on 
television reporting news. They are 
wrinkled and gray, but we say they 
have the appearance of being ex- 
perienced," Shaw said. "It is time 

we respect the right of women to 
wrinkle and gray on the job." 

Shaw said America must make 
basic changes, including stopping 
subtle and outright actions of sex- 
ism. As an example, he said women 
co-workers should be treated the 
same as men. 

"My boss is Ted Turner," Shaw 
said. "When we are together, I 
don't greet him by saying, 'Hi, Ted 
honey or darling or sweetie.' If I 
don't do that with him or other 
males with whom I work, what 
makes me think I should be able to 
do it with women?" 

He said men must stop treating 
women in ways men would never 

"We must change so those who 
study what we did correctly con- 
clude our society matured and af- 
firmed that a woman does not have 
to out-man a man to be respected 
and respectable," he said. "Sexism 
is a poison we have been drinking 
far too long."

n the wee hours of the night, most 
students caught up on needed sleep, 
partied in Aggieville, crammed for 
tests or worked. 

Matt Lowenstein, senior in life 
sciences, worked as a doorman at 
Kite's Bar and Grille and the clos- 
ing shift at Chester E. Peters Recre- 
ation Complex. He said the late 
shift was a good time to earn money 
and left his days free for other ac- 

"They (his jobs) are a source of 
income mainly to help make it from 
month to month," Lowenstein said. 
"I'm able to take care of personal 
business because they (other busi- 
nesses) are open during the day, 
like the bank, the doctor's and cam- 
pus appointments." 

Scott Hedge, senior in hotel and 
restaurant management, worked at 
Cactus Jack's as a management in- 

Hedge said he preferred to work 
during the late shift rather 
than early shift because the 
operation ran more smoothly. 

"There are fewer kinks on the 
late shift. The problems have been 
worked out already that day," Hedge 
said. "The clientele is more relaxed, 
and there is not a time constraint as 
with the lunch rush." 

For some students, a night job 
was easier to find. Mike Rahn, se- 
nior in agricultural economics, 
worked at night as a bartender at 
T.W. Longhorns. 

"Jobs are a lot more available (at 
night) than jobs with a day shift, 
possibly due to the high rate of 
turnover," Rahn said. "I don't mind 
being a drink flinger. Sometimes 
you can make incredible amounts 
of money." 

Hedge agreed, and said night 
jobs were ideal for college students. 

"The tips are better," Hedge said. 
"It is good for a self-financed col- 
lege student." 

However, working late did have 

"Sometimes you have to be fake 
to get a good tip," Rahn said, "and 
put up with drunks for the bucks." 
Lowenstein said he often had 
trouble getting people to leave at 
closing time at both his jobs. 

"It can be a real pain in the ass. 
People just don't want to leave at 
closing," Lowenstein said. "It is the 
same at Kite's and the Rec." 

Lowenstein recalled one episode 
when he pushed a drunk man out of 

"It took two of us to get him 
out," Lowenstein said. "He kept 
grabbing onto the walls trying to 
stay inside." 

Lowenstein removed him from 
the bar and kept a watchful eye on 
the man to ensure he would not re- 

"It was really funny after it was 
all said and done," 
Lowenstein said. "He 
was more of a nuisance 
than a threat." 

Besides having to 
deal with people who 
didn't want to leave at 
closing time, working 
a night job also took away from 
personal time. 

"You really have to budget your 
time," Lowenstein said. "It'sahassle 
if I'm involved in another activity 
and have to leave for work." 

Despite disadvantages, Rahn 
said it was a tradition in his family 
to work nights. 

"My older brother did it (work 
nights), I do it and my younger 
brother does it," he said. "I'm glad 
I'm doing it while I'm still young." 
Hedge and Rahn agreed it was 
hard to get up for early classes, but 
an attempt was made to work around 
class schedules. 

"There is not a problem working 
around class schedules. Manage- 
ment is good about that," Hedge 
said. "I'm used to getting in at three 
in the morning and getting up at 
six. Thank God for weekends." 

As the 
night drags 
on, Rahn 
sits behind 
the bar and

On the

worked, he

The Might Shift m 55 

\Js£/l~ CRISIS 


f^^ yan Swanson, a doorman at 
Kite's Bar &. Grille, was handed an 
ID displaying his sister's picture — 
but the girl standing in front of him 
was a stranger. Surprised, Swanson, 
senior in secondary education, did 
not let the girl enter the bar. 

The girl was one of many minors 
who used fake IDs to avoid the law 
prohibiting underage drinking, but 
she was not the only one who had 
her fake ID confiscated. 

Lisa (not her real name) used 
her older sister's identification. She 
had the fake ID for a year and used 
it almost every weekend, until she 
tried to get into a bar and the 
bouncer knew her sister. 

"It was embarrassing, but it made 
me mad because I didn't want to 
have it taken away," Lisa 
said. "I was scared to go back 

to that bar." 

Tonya (not her real name) also 
had a fake ID. After she had it two 
months, she had already used it 10 
times to get into the bars free. 

"I don't want to pay the $5 cover 
charge," Tonya said. "It's definitely 
worth the price." 

Prices varied, depending on the 
authenticity of the ID. If the cre- 
ator was a friend, a bargain could be 
struck somewhere between $15 to 
$30. Others charged as much as 
$50, depending on the time and 
supplies involved. 

Every bar had its own method 
for dealing with the problem. 

"We probably see about 40 fake 
IDs a night and take about 10," 
Swanson said. 

He added that the fake IDs the 
doormen took were "blatantly bad" 
and had been physically altered. 

TW Longhorns took 10 to 15 
fake IDs per weekend, said Steve 
Fenske, junior in animal sciences 
and industry and a doorman. 

John Green, junior in nuclear 
engineering and doorman at Kite's, 
worked in Aggieville for two years. 
He said most bars offered their door- 
men $5 for each fake ID taken 
because a bar was fined $300 to 
$1 ,500 for allowing minors todrink. 
Fake IDs varied as much as the 
people who used them. 

"I think borrowing somebody 
else's ID is the most common," 
Green said. "I've seen people with 
my friends' IDs and one of a waitress 
at the bar." 

Those who did not borrow an 
ID had their own altered or at- 
tempted to replace the photo with 
their own. 

"Many are j ust some- 
one else's ID, and 
they've cut their own 
picture out and put it 
on. Out-of-state IDs are 
used a lot," said Chris 
Ostrom, senior in En- 
glish and door man at 
Snookie's Bar. "I also 
find a lot of expired licenses." 

Green said people went to ex- 
tremes to get into a bar with an age 

"One guy even used his sister's 
ID. They actually looked a lot alike. 
The only reason he got caught was 
that the sex said female," Green 
said. "He tried to tell us that was a 

After the IDs were taken, the 
Alcoholic Beverage Control used 
them to train people on how to 
recognize fake ones. 

Lynda Wickstrum, Riley County 
Clerk for the district court's office, 
said the maximum punishment for 
having a fake ID was 30 days in jail 
and/or a $500 fine. 

Many of the doormen didn't 
agree on the risk involved. 

"Unless it was an absolutely per- 
fect job, it's not worth the risk," 
Fenske said. "Drink at home, then 
go to the bar — that's what most 
people do."

ien Eric Eicher performed 
coin and card tricks in his magic 
shows, there was nothing magical 
about them. 

"It's a trick. It's a card trick and 
nothing more. I always try to hit 
that as hard as I can," said Eicher, 
senior in secondary education. "I 
don't want to say that I feel it 
(black magic) is impossible, or that 
anything they (wizards) do is real. 
I'm not convinced I know enough 
to say that it isn't really happen- 

Although he believed black 
magic might exist, he said it was 
mainly the mentally ill who be- 
lieved magicians had real power. 

"I undercut it 
(black magic) as 
much as I can because 
of a resurgence of the 
occult right now," he 
said. "I don't want to 
get mixed up with 

Eicher's tricks in- 
volved coins and 
cards. He performed illusions he 
had perfected since he became in- 
terested in magic at age 12. His 
interest grew, and he eventually 
performed at shows across the coun- 
try. In 1988, he performed full- 
time in Overland Park, Kan., for 
parties and trade shows. 

Eicher said his most bizarre ap- 
pearance was at the Country Club 
Plaza in Kansas City, Mo. 

"This average Joe walks in with 
a dozen women and no one else in 
the audience. The women ranged 
from normal looking women to 
really dazzling," Eicher said. "At 
the end (of the show), I asked how 
they all knew each other." 

At that point, all the women 
came on stage and tucked Eicher's 
pay into the top of his pants. 

"It turns out the women were all 

of his favorite strippers from Kansas 
City celebrating his birthday with 
him," Eicher said. 

Since returning to school, Eicher 
cut back on his appearances to have 
time to study and avoid the con- 
stant pressure of getting booked for 
a show. 

"The booking is a feast or fam- 
ine," Eicher said. "There are times 
of the year when you are really busy. 
Then there are other times that are 

He learned most of his tricks 
from books and through lessons 
from other magicians. Eicher said 
performing magic was similar to 
learning to play music. 

"Anytime I do a trick, it will be 
something I put together out of 
different versions of the 
same trick. That way, I make 

what I think may be the best 
version of the trick," Eicher said. 

"Ninety-nine percent of all tricks 
are not worth learning. It is difficult 
to find tricks you can stand to do." 

Eicher's proudest moment was 
when he devised a trick called Fast, 
Faster, Fastest. The trick was pub- 
lished in the book, "Real World 
Card Stuff." 

"I am proud of it. It was some- 
thing I had worked on over the 
years," Eicher said. "Now I think it 
is the best version of that trick I 
have ever seen. Other magicians 
might disagree — it's all ego." 

Eicher enj oyed performing tricks 
for smaller groups, especially when 
the audience contained children. 

"The feeling you get from a child 
watching in wonder is unexplain- 
able," Eicher said. "True magicians 
feel the entire purpose of magic is 
fun for all."

Ft noon, students flocked to the 
K-State Union for food, friends and 
fun. Pushing their way through food 
lines to grab a quick bite to eat and 
socializing before wandering back 
to classes, students found the Union 
offered a welcome break in the day. 

Dale Bixby, senior in chemistry, 
used the Union during school hours 
flowed in cycles during the day. 

"It was full on the hour almost 
every day," Bixby said. "At the half 
hour, there was commotion because 
people were moving in and out." 

Michele Kowalski, freshman in 
psychology, was a cashier for the 
Stateroom cafeteria. She also saw 
daily cycles in the lunch schedules. 

"I work lunch every day except 
Tuesdays, and it gets pretty busy," 
Kowalski said. "It's usually between 
noon and 1 2:30 p.m. when the rush 
comes. There was also a rush around 
3:30 p.m. when office workers took 
their breaks." 

While some students circulated 
throughout the Union, others slept 
on couches and chairs in the 
Cats' Pause Lounge. The room 
provided students a 
quiet and relaxing area to kick 
back, sleep or study. 

"I usually come here about once 
a week to study," said Ted Poppitz, 
freshman in arts and sciences. "It's 
quiet up here, a lot quieter than if I 
were studying at home." 

Mike Baalman, senior in infor- 
mation studies, also studied in the 
Cats' Pause Lounge. 

"I don't come here (the Union) 
very oftenbecause I work," Baalman 
said. "When I do, I usually go to 
Union Station or the Cats' Pause 
— those are the quieter areas." 

The students not only used the 
Union during the day, but also stud- 


ied there at night. 

"I come here at night to study 
because it's quiet," Bixby said. "I 
can usually get more done here 
than if I stayed at home." 

Chris Stipe, junior in political 
science, liked to study and eat at 
the Union. 

"I eat here during the day be- 
tween classes because I live too far 
from campus to walk home," Stipe 
said. "At night I usually study alone 
in the rear of the Stateroom. I'm a 
talker, so I need to be by myself in 
order to get anything done." 

The basement of the Union of- 
fered even more activities. Students 
went bowling and played pool and 
video games. The Union Station 
was another popular spot where 
students took country dance les- 
sons and attended a variety of cul- 
tural theme nights. 

The Union Station also offered 
new events, including a non-tradi- 
tional student dance, African- 
American night and 
jazz music night. Live 
entertainment, such as 
the band Flatlanders, 
also performed. 

Teto Henderson, 
Union Station man- 
ager, said students were 
always around. 

"When the weather 
is bad, we usually have 
more students in here 
between classes," 
Henderson said. "They study, eat 
or just hang out with their friends." 
Finals week was always a busy 
time for student workers in Union 
Station. Because so many students 
took advantage of the Union, the 
hours were extended. 

"Three semesters ago, we de- 
cided to stay open all night long to 
give students a place to study dur- 
ing the night," Henderson said. 
"There has been a great response 
from the students. That is what 
we're here for, to serve the students 
in any way we can."

hat do you get when you take 
300 gallons of a green, Jell-O-like 
liquid, pour it into a large ring made 
from hay bales and mattresses cov- 
ered by a large tarp, add a pound or 
two of dirt — depending on desired 
consistency — and then have 30 
students and two faculty members 
churn it for three hours? 

The answer is Jell-O-Rama. A 
student and faculty tag team Jell-O 
wrestling tournament, the event 
was a joint fund-raising project by 
Mortar Board, Alpha Zeta and the 
Horseman's Association held on 
Nov. 6 in Weber Arena. 

Julie Buzby, junior in animal 
science and industry and member 
of all three groups, said Jell-O wres- 
tling was chosen because it was 
different than any event ever held 
on campus. 

"We wanted something creative. 
Jell-O wrestling was different, and I 
thought it would be 
neat to do something 
for the first time on 
campus," she said. "We 
also wanted a fund- 
raiser that would be fun 
to do." 

Jell-O-Rama was 
advertised with the slo- 
gan, "Come see wrestling like you've 
never seen it before." Participants 
were told from the beginning they 
would not be judged on wrestling 
ability, due to safety concerns. In- 
stead, they were judged on comic 
spiritandsportsmanship, Buzby said. 

As a result, the majority of the 
participants dressed in some form 
of theme-related costumes. These 
ranged from The Graduates, two 
wrestlers who wore caps and gowns, 
to the Toxic Avengers, who donned 
ski masks for the event. 

"Costumes were allowed, but not 
required," Buzby said. "It was a per- 
sonal highlight for me to see what 
everyone came up with." 

The men's tournament was bro- 
ken into seven brackets, with the 
winning team from each bracket 

advancing to the next level. Also, 
there was an exhibition match be- 
tween two women's teams. 

Trophies were awarded to mem- 
bers of the Toxic Avengers, the 
winning team in the men's bracket. 
The team consisted of Chris Hupe, 
senior in finance, and Blake Kaus, 
senior in marketing. 

"We thought it would be a great 
way to end the week," he said. "We 
went into it blindly and j ust put our 
minds to having a lot of fun. Sel- 
dom do you get to dress up, get in 
some Jell-O, dance around and try 
to entertain people. We went crazy 
and had a good time." 

Tammy Shearer, senior in ac- 
counting and historian for Mortar 
Board, participated in the women's 
exhibition because the only 
women's team lacked opponents. 

"The other two girls signed up, so 
we agreed to participate," she said. 

"It was a good change of 
pace because it was something 

that had never been done 
before, and it attracted a lot of 


Although many of the partici- 
pants referred to the Jell-O-like 
substance in the pit as slime, it was 
actually a synthetic mixture. Buzby 
said it was used because it was 
cheaper than Jell-O and didn't harm 
the environment. 

Another component of the slime 
— gritty dirt tracked in from the 
arena floor — was not planned. 

"It was cold and gritty because 
it was mixed with all that dirt," 
Shearer said. "When I stepped onto 
the mat, it was really squishy and 
felt disgusting." 

Despite the messiness, Shearer 
hoped future organizations would 
continue the event. 

"I thought it was a really good 
time, and I hope they do it again," 
she said.

fter weeks of stressful rehears- 
als and anxiety associated with the 
playwright's visit, the Ebony The- 
atre Company's fall production was 
hardly a breeze to produce. On Oct. 
29-31, "The First Breeze of Sum- 
mer" was performed to sold-out 
crowds at the Purple Masque The- 

"It's been a doozy ," said Jeneena 
Hubbard, sophomore in theater and 
stage manager for the production. 
"Like any other play, 
it had rough parts. But 
with the good cast and 
crew we had, I must 
say it turned out rather 

The play, based 
loosely on playwright 
Leslie Lee's life, re- 
volved around a teenage boy strug- 
gling with his emotions as he faced 
adulthood. The boy, Lou, not only 
struggled with his own identity, but 
was also forced to come to terms 
with the scandalous past of 
Gremmar, his grandmother. 
Gremmar's past was portrayed 
through a series of flashbacks. 

"The play was about realization 
and reconciliation," said Margaret 
DeBrown, graduate student in 
speech and director. "Gremmar had 
to reconcile with her past while 
Lou had to deal with his future. He 
had to accept his color and his 
grandmother's imperfections." 

Lee, who had not seen his play 
performed for 1 5 years , was on hand 
for the production. His visit was 
sponsored by the Ebony Theatre 
Company, the provost's office, the 
Department of Speech and the 
American Ethnic Studies program. 

"I sat next to him during the 
show. After a few scenes, he told 
me that he liked what 1 had done to 
his play," DeBrown said. "He said 
that it was very touching." 

As a professor of playwriting at 
New York University, Lee wrote 
more than 15 scripts for the the- 


ater. For television, Lee wrote sev- 
eral scripts including "Almos' a 
Man" and "Go Tell It on the Moun- 
tain." Lee was also a former 
scriptwriter for "Another World," 
an NBC soap opera. 

Jeffrey Efford, freshman in the- 
ater, portrayed Lee as a young man, 
and said he was impressed Lee had 
traveled from New York to see the 
production. Efford said having Lee 
present didn't make him nervous. 

"I really put myself into 
my character. I tried to 

block out the audience 
and perform my best," 
Efford said. 

During his visit, Lee attended 
several playwriting and dramatic 
structure classes at K-State. He also 
spent time giving advice to aspiring 

"He gave me a lot of advice," 
Efford said. "He told me to keep on 
a narrow path and put the theater 
before anything else." 

Putting the production first was 
what the cast had to do, as rehears- 
als dominated their lives. Efford 
said the rehearsals were tiring, but 
the time spent together allowed 
the cast to become good friends. 

"We really had a bond between 
us," Efford said. "During the group 
prayer on the last night of the show, 
a few of the cast members even 
became emotional." 

Sirfredrick Rivera-Mitchell, a 
visiting actor from New York Uni- 
versity, said the cast helped each 
other memorize their lines. Other 
cast members said friendships de- 
veloped out of the support they 
gave each other. 

"We have been very supportive 
of each other," said Tammy Grant, 
senior in physical sciences. "I can 
say that these people are really my 
friends now."

with the Tulsa Ballet Theatre, 
taught a dance to eight-year-olds 
Helen Yetter and Elizabeth Fry. 

"Now lean side to side," 
Humrichouse said. "Keep your toes 
pointed. You are going to hop to 
the back of the stage and sit beside 
me on a box. You have to be still 
and quiet. Do you understand?" 

The girls nodded in agreement, 
but Fry looked worried. After fidg- 
eting for a moment, she blurted out 
her concern. 

"Do we have to smile ?" she asked. 

"No, you don't have to," 
Humrichouse said. 
"But you can if you 
want to." 

Relieved, Fry be-

rabbits and clowns. Children were 
chosen based upon skill and size. 

"The Tulsa company doesn't 
send anyone to conduct the audi- 
tions. We had people who were 
knowledgeable in dance do it," said 
Richard Martin, director of 
McCain. "We were sent instruc- 
tions about the kinds of movements 
to look for, as well as how tall the 
children needed to be to fit into the 

At the auditions, the children 
performed simple dance steps and 
tumbling movements. 

"All of the waiting and sitting at 
the auditions was worth it," said 
eight-year-old Katie Claussen, who 
was cast as a toy soldier. "I'm just 
happy to be in it." 

The children were taught their 
dances on the day of the first perfor- 
mance. Many children said they 

were nervous about performing 
onstage in front of a large audience. 

"I've watched the tape of "The 
Nutcracker" five times, so I pretty 
much know my part," Claussen said. 
"But I'm worried I'll trip and fall off 
the stage." 

Although he wasn't nervous 
about performing, Zach Fridell, an 
eight-year-old toy soldier, was con- 
cerned about dress requirements. 

"I got a letter in the mail telling 
me to put my hair in a bun," Fridell 
said. "I don't think they (the Tulsa 
company) know I'm a boy." 

Despite children's worries, Mar- 
tin said the sold-out performances 
went as smoothly as possible. 

"Some of the children had a 
few missteps," Martin said, "but 
that's part of the charm with 
having children involved." 

Parents said the performance was 
a good learning experience for their 

"It's always good for kids to be in 
front of an audience," said Shirley 
Arck, whose eight-year-old daugh- 
ter, Jessica, was a baker. "It helps 
them become more self-confident. 
This performance is also good be- 
cause the kids can see how a profes- 
sional company works." 

Matt Droge, 7, said he enjoyed 
his role as a toy soldier because he 
danced beside the Nutcracker. 

"We (toy soldiers) were kneel- 
ing down and theNutcracker bowed 
to us," Droge said. "It was weird to 
be on stage because there were so 
many lights and so many people 

Many of the children said they 
wanted to grow up to be profes- 
sional dancers. However, Fry said 
dancing was only her hobby.

while longer," Fry said, "but when I 
grow up I want to be a pediatri-

*ven-year-old Maggie's laugh- 
ter filled the car as she chattered 
about the fun she had with Carolyn. 
They had spent their time baking 
cookies and visiting the zoo. Maggie 
grabbed the bag of cookies she had 
saved for her mom, hugged Carolyn 
and closed the car doorwithasmile. 

Carolyn and Maggie were a 
match in Manhattan's Big Broth- 
ers/Big Sisters program. Gwyn 
Crumplar, executive director of 
Manhattan's program, said there 
were 101 big brothers and big sisters 
with matches. 

"The program in Manhattan is 
one of the most outstanding in the 
United States," Crumplar said. "We 
just had our national evaluation, 
and we were given excellent rat- 

Part of the success of the pro- 
gram was attributed to the $32,000 
raised from the Big Brothers/Big 
Sisters annual BowlingClassic.The 
money was used as salary for three 
full-time workers and paid for office 
rent and supplies. The program was 
supported by United Way. 

Even with the program's 
achievements, Crumplar said 50 
children were on a waiting 
list to be matched. 

A division of the Big Brothers/ 
Big Sisters program, called Friends 
of Big Brothers and Big Sisters, 
planned pizza parties, trips to the 
zoo and Halloween and Christmas 
parties so the children didn't feel 

Fraternities and sororities also 
entertained children on the wait- 
ing list. Crumplar said greek orga- 
nizations sponsored about five or 
six activities each semester. 

"The sorority or fraternity spon- 
sors an event such as skating or 
bowling, and they cover the cost," 

Crumplar said. 

After the student participants 
spent time with the children, many 
were inspired to become more in- 
volved in the program. 

"I've always thought it (being a 
big sister) would be neat, but I 
never thought I'd do it until I went 
to a bowling party with a group," 
said Lisa Harsh, junior in apparel 
design. "I met a little girl there who 
made me want to join the pro- 

Meeting the girl made Harsh 
realize the effect she could have on 
someone's life. 

"I want to request that little girl 
once I am a big sister," Harsh said. 
"This will give me a chance to 
make a difference in someone's life 
while giving part of mine." 

There were three requirements 
volunteers had to meet. 

"They must be at least 18, own a 
car and have insurance coverage 
and commit a year to the program, 
spending three to six hours a week 
with their little (brother or sister)," 
said Carol Babcock, casework co- 

Wes Ray, senior in 
social work, had been 
matched with his little 
brother, Courtney 
Wilson, for 16 
months. He said the 
program tried to 
match people according to inter- 

"The interest survey is used to 
match your interests and highlight 
the kind of little (brother or sister) 
you'd like to have," Ray said. "We 
like to play basketball, go bowling, 
shopping, to movies and games. I 
help him with his homework." 

Sixty-five percent of the 
program's volunteers were students. 
"College students make great 
volunteers because the children 
love their age group," Crumplar

' winding county road led to 
The Stump, a bar in Alta Vista, 
population430. At the end of Main 
Street, the small building was 
framed by farm equipment and a 
snow-covered slope where 
children's squeals shattered the 
cool silence. In Aggieville, the bar 
would have stuck out like an oxen- 
pulled plow, but on Jan. 23 a sea of 
students crammed between its 

The winter night marked the 
debut performance of Strawboss, 
also known as the Kaw River Swa- 
mis, a bluegrass band mainly com- 
posed of Collegian staff members. 

"Originally, we were going to 
do it (perform at the Stump) for 
nothing," said David Frese, senior 
in journalism and mass communi- 
cations, Collegian columnist and 
guitar player. "When we got there, 
they handed us pitcher after 
pitcher. Then they gave us $50 to 
go out and eat breakfast. We don't 
do it (perform) for the money — 
we do it just to do it." 

The members played together 
at parties and on porches, 
but could not pinpoint the day 

when they considered 
themselves a band. 

"Last summer when Eric 
( Henry) moved back to town from 
Hutchinson, we started getting to- 
gether," said Shawn Bruce, senior 
in journalism and mass communi- 
cations, Collegian city-govern- 
ment editor and guitar player. "Ev- 
ery time we'd get together, we'd sit 
around playing music. Then (Ed) 
Skoog started coming over, then 
Todd ( G ish ) , our mandol in player, 
and Paul (Schmidt), our bass 

player, started coming every once 
in a while. It just kind of took off 
from there." 

The informal organization of 
the group was reflected in their 
refusal to become preoccupied with 
choosing a band name. 

"Eric (Henry) has a list on his 
computer of about 400 conceptual 
names of bands," said Skoog, se- 
nior in English, Collegian colum- 
nist and banjo and mandolin 
player. "Strawboss was on that list. 
When we played at The Stump, 
we were the Kaw River Swamis. 
Not having a permanent name is 
part of our attempt to subvert the 
dominant paradigm — to bring 
about the worker's revolution." 

Mood Com, Fun with Lug Nuts 

and Skillet Lickers were also names 

the band members kicked around. 

"We all wanted something that 

sounded kind of goofy , but reflected 

our agrarian roots," said Henry, 

graduate student in journalismand 

mass communications, Collegian 

staff member and a guitar, banjo 

and mandolin player. 

"A strawboss is a work 

foreman — the guy 

who's in charge of the 

crew that day. The 

Kaw River Swamis 

was a crazy thing Ed 

(Skoog) came up 

with. Everybody 

seems overly concerned with the 

name stuff. I don't think anybody 

( in the band) really cares what our 

name is. We joke around with it 

more than anything." 

Band members spent between 
20-40 hours each week working 
on the Collegian, besides being 
involved in various campus orga- 
nizations. This made it difficult to 
schedule practices.

"We keep it (practices) low 
key," Bruce said. "There's never 
any, 'You practice tonight oryou'll 
be thrown out of the band.' " 

Members didn't have to be co- 
erced to play together. Each said 
they regarded music as a form of 
stress relief and would play an in- 
strument whether or not they were 
part of a band. 

"I've been playing (guitar) since 
I was 10," Henry said. "I don't 
know what I'd do if I didn't play — 
probably whittle. Everybody has 
something they do to relieve stress

or keep from studying. If we weren't 
in a band, I'd be sitting in my room 
playing records." 

Frese said he enjoyed hanging 
out with the band members. 

"When you go to college, you 
expect certain things: plays, people 
sitting on stoops reciting poetry or 
sitting on porches playingguitars," 
he said. "The people I hang out 
with do those things. It kind of 
brings all those aspects of college 
together in one living room." 

The group's members had been 
playing instruments for many years. 

For Skoog, it was a movie that influ- 
enced his decision to play the banjo. 
"A couple of weeks after I gradu- 
ated from high school, I went to 
work at a welding outfit," Skoog 
said. "At the same time, I saw 
'Deliverance,' which is a great 
banjo movie. A guy I worked with 
played the banjo, and we were 
talking about it. I went down to 
Capitol City Pawn Shop and 
bought a banjo for $ 1 00 and learned 
to play it." 

Bruce also taught himself how 
to play an instrument. 

"I got my first guitar at age 16," 
Bruce said. "I learned two basic 
chords with my 
'Learn to Play Gui- 
tar' book accompa- 
nied with the audio 
(tape). I'dgo hangout 
at music stores and 

♦ I ask them how to play 

! it. In high school, I 
was in the late, great 
Kruell and the 
Moosemen — we 
knew three songs. I 
was also in a punk 
band in Lindsborg 
called Fetal Pig." 

Some of the band 
members also played 
music that varied from 
the bluegrass music 
that characterized the 
band. However, 
Henry returned to the 
bluegrass music his fa- 
ther had introduced 
him to as a child. 
"When I got a guitar for my 
10th birthday, my dad showed me 
a few songs," Henry said. "As I got 
older, I wanted to play like Eddie 
VanHalen.Now, I'm back to play- 
ing the same three chord songs I 
learned when I was 10 years old. 
"When Dad came down to 
watch us at The Stump, the neat- 
est part for me was the fact that 
he's the guy who showed me how 
to play the songs I'm playing now. 
Bluegrass is a form of music that's 
passed along. It's different in that 

way and kind of special."

"s the student approached his 
car, he noticed paper napping un- 
derneath his windshield wiper. On 
closer inspection, he was angered 
to find a $10 parking ticket, one of 
approximately 10,400 written each 
year on campus. However, the stu- 
dent shouldn't complain to campus 
police officers because they didn't 
write the majority of campus park- 
ing tickets. 

"Most of the tickets are given 
out by Parking Services, "said Laurie 
Harrison, dispatcher for the KSU 
Police Department. "I don't know 
why students complain to us, ex- 
cept that it's a matter of habit." 

Students com- 
plaining to the police 
department about 
their tickets didn't re- 
alize they were frus- 
trated with the wrong 

"The biggest gripe 
we get is over parking 
tickets, butKSU Park- 
ing Services moved 
last year, and a lot of people still 
don't know that," Harrison said. 

Without the hassle of issuing 
parking tickets, the police officers 
had more time to patrol campus. 

Charles Beckom, captain of the 
police department, said police of- 
ficers' duty was to promote a safe 
environment on campus. The 17 
police officers in the department 
were assisted by eight cameras 
posted around campus. The cam- 
eras helped police officers keep on 
top of campus crimes. 

"These cameras are interesting. 
They actually need one person full 
time," Harrison said. "It should be a 
position all of its own." 

Harrison said the police caught 
people committing criminal acts 
with the use of the cameras. 

"One night on the graveyard 

shift, a car's brake lights were going 
on and off," he said. "We sent an 
officer to check it out and caught 
someone stealing a stereo." 

Although the cameras were use- 
ful, they were not meant to replace 
patrolling officers. 

"We try to keep up a high pro- 
file," Harrison said, "especially at 
public events." 

The police officers worked more 
hours when campus events took 
place to ensure safety. 

"The officers work at least 40 
hours a week, plus overtime, de- 
pending on campus functions," 
Beckom said. 

The police officers didn't spend 
their timecruising campus in their 
squad cars. According to 

the police department's sta- 
tistics, police officers logged 2,922 
walking hours in 1992. 

The police department's high 
profile helped decrease unwanted 
campus crimes. 

"This year seems to be quieter 
than in the past," Beckom said. "A 
review of the statistics indicate a 
smaller percentage of criminal acts 
than last year." 

Beckom said the smaller num- 
ber of crimes was the result of a 
team effort with the University. 

"Within the campus, there's leg- 
islation that has created an aware- 
ness for campus safety," he said. 

Although the low crime rate 
made Beckom proud, he said cam- 
pus organizations deserved some of 
the credit. 

"Our interactions with the stu- 
dent groups concerned about per- 
sonal safety have helped everyone," 
he said.

ollege nightlife. 

To some parents, this phrase 
brought images of their children 
downing tequila shots at their fa- 
vorite Aggieville watering hole. 

But to students, college nightlife 
often meant spending long hours 
on campus catching up with home- 
work and completing projects. 

Carolyn Coon, junior in inte- 
rior architecture, said she spent an 
average of six hours on campus 
every night after classes. 

"We're in class eight hours a 
Coon said. "After class, we go home 
to eat and come back by 7 p.m. 
Then we stay here until 3 a.m." 

Coon was one of many students 
who opted to spend evenings study- 
ing in studios at Seaton Hall, in the 
stacks at Farrell Library or in one of 
the 24-hour computer 
labs located across 

Niki Hostetler, 
sophomore in business 
worked late-night 
hours in Dickens 
Hall's computer lab. 

"I'll be spending a lot of time 
here at night because of my statis- 
tics class," she said, "and last semes- 
ter when I was in Introduction to 
Personal Computers, I stayed in the 
labs until one or two in the morn- 


During peak times like finals 
week, labs and studios were often 
overcrowded by students trying to 
finish last-minute assignments. De- 
spite the crowd, students were able 
to use campus areas to their advan- 

"The lab gets pretty crowded, 
but it's nice because you can get 
help from other students in the 
lab," Hostetler said. 

Coon agreed. 

"Working in the studio at night 
is beneficial because we can learn 
from other students," she said. 

Getting help from others was 
just one reason students stayed on 
campus at night. Joyce Savage, se- 
nior in marketing, spent three or 
four evenings a week studying in 
Farrell because it was quiet. 

"The Union is dark and people 
are always talking. I usually come 
here to study because it's quiet," 
Savage said. "I can study a lot bet- 
ter, and I can keep from falling 

Despite the benefits of working 
on campus late at night, some stu- 
dents said they experienced prob- 
lems. Dave Bulte, junior in interior 
architecture, said sleepiness was the 
biggest problem he faced. 

"To stay awake, I usually 
do something," he said. 

"Sometimes I just get up and 
wander around and talk to 
other people." 

Besides falling asleep, students 
were also worried about late-night 
campus safety. Tangela Robinson, 
freshman in industrial engineering, 
said she often walked alone from 
Dickens' computer lab to her room 
in Goodnow Hall. 

"I don't work too late — usually 
until around 10:30 p.m.," she said, 
"but it's a long way back home and 
I don't like to walk by myself at 

Hostetler also disliked walking 
on campus late at night. 

"There's not many people out 
on campus really late," she said, 
"but I usually have someone along 
to walk with me."

'ach workday began with a flip 
of the cutters. 

"We flip the cutters, and the guy 
who wins has to do all the work," 
said Corey Krehbiel, herdsman at 
the Purebred Beef Teaching Re- 
search Center and assistant instruc- 
tor in animal sciences and industry. 
"It's one of those manly things — 
you want to be the one who 
works the whole day while 
the other guy just drives the 
truck. When the work is 
done, you feel satisfied you 
could do it." 

Krehb iel and five student 
workers took care of the 
University's cattle at the 
purebred beef unit, located 
one-fourth mile north of 
Parking Lot B3. Beginning 
at 7 a.m., the workers heaved 
burlap sacks onto the back 
of a pick-up truck and dis- 
tributed feed to the cattle. 

"We weigh all the feed," 
Krehbiel said. "Everything is 
given in exact measure- 
ments. We feed the cattle in 
the barns twice a day and the 
cows in the pasture once a 

Parking the truck next to 
the barn, Krehbiel and Brad 
Gray, senior in animal sci- 
ences and industry, 
scrambled up to the barn's 
loft and tossed hay bales 
down into the truck. One of 
the bales Gray threw fell off 
the truck's bed, causing 
Krehbiel to laugh. 

"Usually, when one of us 
throws a bale off the truck, 
we have to do the feeding," Krehbiel 
said. "But I feel bad because he was 

doing all the work." 

The beef unit was not only home 
to Angus, Simmentals, horned 
Herefords and polled Herefords, but 
also to Gray, who lived in the barn's 
apartment to be near the cattle in 
case of emergencies. 

"I heard about the job by word of 
mouth," Gray said. "I'm here if

purebred industry, and this gives 
me good experience." 

Between February and April, the 
unit's cattle population boomed. 

"We artificially inseminate the 
cattle. We take semenfrom the bull 
and put it in a straw to breed the 
heifers," Krehbiel said. "That way 
we know the exact date they will 

About 130 heifers gave 
birth, requiring the workers 
to be on duty during the 
night. Every two hours the 
heifers were checked. 
Krehbiel said the cattle dis- 
played warning signs before 
they gave birth. 

"An hour before the cows 
are going to give birth, they 
stick their tails up," Krehbiel 
said. "First, we see the water 
bag, then the feet. If the calf 
won't come out, we have to 
help pull." 

Krehbiel said the major- 
ity of the heifers didn't have 
problems during delivery. 

"We usually let the cows 
calve on their own," Krehbiel 
said. "Only one out of 10 
need help. If we pull a calf, 
we hang it upside down to 
clear out its lungs." 

However, on Feb. 5 a 
heifer had trouble delivering 
her calf. Krehbiel, Gray and 
Doug Peine, junior in ani- 
mal sciences and industry, 
tried pulling on the calf, but 
it didn't help. 

"The calf was too big for 

the heifer," Krehbiel said. 

"She was trying to have it 

and couldn't. We started pulling

the calf, but we could tell it wasn't 
coming out." 

The heifer was taken to the Col- 
lege of Veterinary Medicine, where 
the calf was delivered 
through a Caesarean 
section. After the op- 
eration, both the calf 
and cow returned to 
the barn and were 
watched closely. 

"It's unusual for a 
cow to have a Caesar- 
ean section," Krehbielsaid."Itprob- 
ably only happens in one out of 
every 100 cows." 

With the births of the calves, 
the workers had additional duties 
to perform. 

"It takes longer to do chores," 
Krehbiel said. "We have to make 
sure we see every calf every day." 

The weather was also a factor in 
determining the amount of time 

workers devoted to chores. Krehbiel 
said both the workers and the ani- 
mals disliked cold weather. 

"When it snows, it takes all day to 
do the chores. We have to clean the 
snow out of the banks," Krehbielsaid. 

"The cows don't like to walk 
the frozen ground — it 
hurts their feet. When 

it's nice, we can get chores 

done in half a day." 

Although taking care of the 
cattle was a big responsibility, 
Krehbiel said he enjoyed his job. 

"We have a good time at work 
— it's not all business," he said.

These were students who worked 
out for a variety of reasons at the 
Chester E. Peters Recreation Com- 
plex. Exercising went beyond low- 
ering cholesterol levels and the Rec 
Complex served so many students 
that it was running out of space. 

To flatten stomachs, impress 
new neighbors or relieve stress 
caused by classes, 3,000 students 
and faculty used the Rec Complex 
daily. Although most went to work- 
out, some had ulterior motives when 
it came to exercising. 

"I go to the Rec to look at all the 
fine guys in the weight room," said 
Andrea Bono, freshman in arts and 
sciences. " I like to workout and lift 
weights every day." 

Since so many people attended 
the Rec Complex, the staff at the 
check-in counter kept 
busy. Angie Smith, se- 
nior in kinesiology, was 
the assistant building 

"There's never re- 
ally a slow time of day ," 
Smith said. "There's 
never a day that goes by that is not 
extremely busy, even on Friday and 
Saturday nights." 

Since more than 450,000 people 
took advantage of the Rec Com- 
plex yearly, the University planned 
a maj or expansion by the Ken Ebert 
Design Team, a local architectural 
firm. A student referendum in No- 
vember 1991 resulted in 81 percent 
of voters supporting the expansion. 
Because 78 percent of all students 
visited the Rec Complex, nearly 
every rec-goer was in favor of the 

The expansion plans included a 
new weight and fitness room, an 

aerobic multipurpose room, a one- 
eighth-mile indoor touring track 
with skylights and a video lounge 
for sports programming. The plans 
also included renovating the cur- 
rent check- in counter into a re- 
source center. 

"This center will be a place for 
people to find fitness information 
and current sports literature," said 
Raydon Robel, director of the Rec 
Complex. "We haven't figured out 
how we are going to man it, though." 

The $7.9 million cost was cov- 
ered v,, h. no increase to student 
fees or tuition. Robel said the Uni- 
versity paid off loans with student 
fees, and instead of lowering the 
fees after the debts were compen- 
sated, the fees were kept at the same 
amount for the sole purpose of fund- 
ing the expansion. 

"The expansion project was part 
of the Union/Rec/Football referen- 
dum that was passed by the Student 
Government Association," Robel 

"There will be no additional fee 
to the students because we 

are using money that has 
simply been redirected." 

Although the majority of stu- 
dents used the Rec Complex's ser- 
vices, 22 percent of the student 
body did not. Bethany Sandercox, 
sophomore in animal sciences and 
industry, never attended the Rec 

" I prefer swimming to working 
out in a hot, sweaty gym," Sandercox 
said. "But I am not opposed to the 
expansion because I do use Rec 
Services. I just go to the Natato- 
rium instead of the Rec Complex." 

However, the 3 ,000 people who 
attended the Rec Complex daily 
looked forward to the expansion 
project's completion in 1994-

Feeding the Masses 

UN intervenes to help starving Somalians 

TIME — Starvation, famine and a 
brutal civil war prompted the ad- 
vanced team of the United State's 
Operation Restore Hope to invade 
Somalia Dec. 9, 1992. 

Spearheading a force of 28,000 
troops, the United States sent a 
three-ship amphibious-assault unit 
accompanied by 60Navy warplanes 
to free the capital city ofMogadishu. 
Because Somalia did not have any 
planes or helicopters in flying con- 
dition, the mission was unchal- 
lenged in the air, as well as on land. 

Full-scale civil war broke out in 
SomaliaNov. 17, 1991. Since then, 
rivalry between interim President 
Mohammed AH Mahdi and Gen- 
eral Mohammed Farrah Aidid, 
members of the same clan, have 

caused thousands of civilian casu- 

Besides the deaths caused by 
untrained armed forces, more lives 
were lost from malnutrition, dis- 
ease and starvation. The lack of 
adequate medical facilities made 
the death toll even more pro- 
nounced. The famine that plagued 
the country was largely due to the 
warfare and looting that had ran- 
sacked the country since President 
Siad Barre was overthrown in Janu- 
ary 1991. 

The conditions in Somalia trig- 
gered the United Nation's Security 
Council's decision to extend hu- 
manitarian aid to the struggling 
country in 1992. In lieu of the dan- 
gerous state of Somalia, the Secu- 

rity Council suspended rules that 
limited U.N. peacekeepers from 
firing the first shot. The United: 
Nations' plan, formed to com- 
bat the death toll of 1,000 So- 
malians per day, required U.S. 
troops to secure the country for 
the traditional U. N. peacekeep-l 
ing force. 

The plan was complicated by 
the anarchic state within Somalia. 
Many peacekeeping soldiers tried 
to make their presence less threat- 
ening by helping Somalians con-: 
struct roads and by offering medical 
assistance. However, this aid was 
fruitless unless the peacekeeping, 
force stayed long enough to estab- 
lish an effective governing chain of

issue reported the outsiders were 

News of Diana's fight with 
bulimia, her alleged suicide attempts 
and Charles' alleged affair with 
Camilla Parker-Bowles preceded the 
announcement that the couple would 
maintain their marriage in name only. 
The royal couple would remain mar- 
ried, but live separate lives and share 
custody of their two sons, Prince 
William and Prince Harry. 

Their differences were evident 
from the beginning. Diana was 13 

years younger than Charles and 
had the ability to grasp the public's 
attention. While Diana shone in 
the limelight, Charles preferred 
escaping to the country. 

As Diana gave speeches about 
AIDS and sponsored benefits for 
the elderly, Charles concentrated 
on founding the Institute for Ar- 

Both had their own interests , so the 
royal couple's split was no surprise. 
However, there wasstillthequestion of 
whether Charles and Diana would 
ascend to the throne. Knowledgeable 
palace observers said they didn't ex- 
pect the couple to be coronated since 
their marriage was such a farce.

Clinton sends food 
packs to bosnia 

NEWSWEEK — The continuing civil war in 
the former nation of Yugoslavia caught the 
attention of the United States in 1992. 

President Bill Clinton decided to avoid mili- 
tary intervention. However, he offered the 
Bosnians pallets of food, medicine and supplies 
that were mostly dropped at night by U.S. 

Efforts of the United Nations fell short be- 
cause of fear of retaliation against French and 
British peacekeeping troops on Bosnian soil. 
The U.N. no-fly-zone resolution, passed in Oc- 
tober 1992, was not enforced, though Clinton 
and Bush both promised it would be. 

According to the Jan. 4, 1993 issue, a senior 
administrator for Bush said if the United States 
sent military ground troops overseas, they would 
be in danger of destroying American-Russian 
relations, causing Bush's idea of a "new world 
order" to vanish.

King Verdict Evokes Riots in Los Angeles 

NEWYORKTIMES— Wavesofviolence flooded 
the streets of Los Angeles after the April 29, 1992, 
acquittal of four white police officers in the beating 
of Rodney King, a black motorist. King's March 3 
beating was videotaped by an amateur cameraman. 
The 81 -second tape, which showed the police 
officers hitting King 56 times, was submitted as 
evidence to an all-white jury. 

After the jury acquitted the officers, violence 
erupted in south-central Los Angeles. Stores were 
looted, motorists were dragged from their cars and 
beaten, and firefighters were swamped with over 
3,500 building fires. 

Los Angeles Mayor Frank Jordan declared a 
state of emergency and imposed a curfew ordering 
people off the streets from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. More 

1 hree young people were 
arrested after their com- 
panions broke the windows 
of the May Co. Depart- 
ment Store at Wilshire 
Blvd. and Fairfax Ave. on 
Thursday, April 30 at about 
2 p.m. They had come with 
about 30 other young 
people, some of whom were 
carrying baseball bats, steel 
rods, axes, beer bottles, 
soda cans and bottles filled 
with gasoline. The others 
fled when police arrived;

phalt while they were hand-

than 5,000 federal troops were called in to man 
roadblocks, provide security for emergency equip- 
ment and assist police officers in bringing the area 
under control. 

In astatement outside his attorney's office in Beverly 
Hills, Calif., King begged for the violence to end. 

"People, I just want to say, you know, can we all 
get along? I mean, we're all stuck here for a 
while," King said. "Let's try to work it out." 

The riots, which ended May 2, caused more 
than $500 million in damages. Fifty people died 
from violence caused by the riots, 2,116 were in- 
jured and 9,500 were arrested. 

Almost a year after the violence in Los Ange- 
les subdued, the white officers were brought up on 
federal charges for abusing King's civil rights.

Inauguration Celebration 

Clintons Speech Focuses on Change 

The message of newly inaugu- 
rated President Bill Clinton was 

"We must make change our 
friend and not our enemy," he said. 
"We need a government for to- 
morrow and not yesterday." 

It was a speech well received by 
the estimated 300,000 people gath- 
ered near the west steps of the U.S. 
Capitol building. 

"The speech was impressive," 
said Amy Sears of Arlington, Va. 
"I hope he can come through on 
some of what he has promised. I 
think the new administration pro- 
vides a glimmer of hope." 

Even political foes conveyed a 
begrudging respect for Clinton. 

"It's a very exciting time," said 
Sen. Bob Dole, R-Kan. "This is a 
big celebration and a time for non- 
partisanship, but we'll have to wait 
and see what the agenda is. There 
will be a lot of work to do." 

To do that work, Clinton called 
on young people to serve their com- 
munity. He reminded the older gen- 
eration they were borrowing 
America from the younger genera- 
tion. Clinton also asked Congress 
to put aside personal conflicts and 
work for a better America. 

"Let us put aside personal ad- 

vantages so we can see the pain and 
promise of America," Clinton said. 
"Let's give this Capitol back to the 
people to whom it belongs." 

An estimated one million 
jammed the inauguration parade 
route which followed the inaugura- 
tion speech. The crowd was treated 
to a float of Elvis impersonators, as 
well as traditional parade fare. 

Later, Clinton made a mad dash 
around Washington, D.C., attend- 
ing six inaugural balls. Those at- 
tending the various balls were 
treated to the music of Fleetwood 
Mac, Los Lobos and Robert Cray, 
among others. Clinton himself 

added a little saxophone action to a 
house band. 

But to Jim LaRue of Baltimore, 
Md., the festivities were secondary 
to the message Clinton gave in his 
speech's conclusion. 

"I thought it was a very good 
speech," LaRue said. "It was almost 

As Clinton's voice strained from 
overuse, he paraphrased JFK's call 
to action in his 1 96 1 inaugural address. 

"We have heard the trumpets. 
We have heard the call," Clinton 
said. "Now with God's help, we 
must answer that call."

Campout Crisis 

Alleged Rape Prompts New State Law 

COLLEGIAN — A K-State campus 
rape case in which charges against a 
suspect were dropped because he and 
the alleged victim had consumed alco- 
hol, sparked action from the Kansas 
Legislature. On March 3, the Senate 
and House of Representatives passed 
two bills prohibiting intoxication to be 
used as a defense in rape cases. 

The bills were written in re- 
sponse to an alleged incident at the 
September campout for basketball 
tickets. Mark Mazour, junior in ar- 
chitectural engineering, was ar- 
rested and charged with one count 
each of rape and sodomy. However, 
Riley County Prosecutor Bill 
Kennedy didn't prosecute the case 
because of contradictory evidence. 

"What it comes down to is, I 
didn't think I could make a jury 
believe beyond a reasonable doubt 

that the person who was arrested 
was guilty of rape," Kennedy said. 

However, the new bills could 
prevent similar cases from being 
thrown out of court. The Senate 
bill, which passed 39-0, broadened 
the definition of rape to include 
sexual intercourse with persons in- 
capable of giving consent because 
they were intoxicated or on drugs. 
It also eliminated maniage as a de- 
fense for aggravated indecent liberties 
with a child less than 16 years of age. 
The bill was to take effect July 1. 

Although Mazour didn't face a 
court trial, he was disciplined by the 
University. A four-member com- 
mittee decided he had violated the 
University's sexual violence policy. 

On Jan. 15, Mazour filed a law- 
suit asking the panel's actions to be 
dropped or modified, and that the 

University's sexual violence polic 
be found unconstitutional. His pt 
tition named the University, th 
Office of the President, the Offic 
of the Dean of Student Life and th 
panel as defendants. 

Mazour raised questions in h 
petition about bias on the part < 
Susan Scott, the panel's chai: 
woman. Mazour also claimed h 
wasn't allowed to subpeona wi 
nesses and that his attorney wasn 
allowed to address the panel or t 
present during the presentation < 
testimony and interviews from ar 
witnesses except Mazour. 

The University's response d< 
nied the accusations and asked tr 
court for monetary compensatic 
from Mazour for costs associate 
with preparing the transcript ar 
time devoted to the case.

Governor Approves 
Kansas Casinos 

COLLEGIAN - In February, the 
Kansas House voted 68-57 to pass a 
bill that would set up procedures for 
the state to ex- 
ecute gambling 
compacts with 
Indian tribes. 

The bill 
would create 
an 11 -member 
committee to 
review all In- 
dian gambling 
compacts. Af- 
ter the com- 
mittee review, 
the compacts 
would be nego- 
tiated by a 
panel, two of 

the members would be legislators. 
This would limit the influence of 
Gov. Joan Finney, who executed 
the original compacts in a proce- 
dure that was overruled by the Kan- 
sas Supreme Court. 

"The Legislature has to set down 
the rules for compacts," said Senate 
Minority Leader Jerry Karr, D-Em- 

Vjovernor Joan Finney. (Associated 

Legislative leaders originally pro- 
posed hav ing Finney negotiate com- 
pacts on her own, then submit them 
to a committee 
of 10 legisla- 
tors. Finney 
had argued the 
didn't need to 
be ratified by 
legislators be- 
fore the Kan- 
sas Supreme 
Court ruling. 

Finney, a 
strong sup- 
porter of In- 
dian gambling, 
had signed 
compacts with 
Kansas tribes 
including the Iowa, the Kickapoo, 
the Prairie Band Potawatomi and 
the Sac and Fox. A 1 988 federal law 
required states to negotiate with 
Indian tribes before permitting them 
to offer casino gambling on reserva- 
tions. If the state failed to negotiate 
in good faith, the matter could be 
taken out of the hands of state 
lawmakers and to a federal court. 


COLLEGIAN - In protest to the 32 mill 
levy initiated by Gov. Joan Finney, nine 
Kansas school districts in seven counties 
sued the state. 

Taking things a step farther, 20 coun- 
ties threatened to secede from the state of 
Kansas in response to inadequate govern- 
ment representation even though they 
paid higher taxes per capita than their 
urban counterparts. 

"We're paying all the money in taxes, 
and the money's going to bigger school 
districts," said Shannon Bozone, senior in 

fine arts. 

A poll conducted during the presiden- 
tial primary determined that residents in 
seven of the counties were highly support- 
ive of the secession movement, so a peti- 
tion was organized in February 1992. 

In September, a constitutional con- 
vention was held to approve a constitution 
for a new independent republic called West 
Kansas. However, the 150 delegates who 
attended the convention could not sway 
the Topeka legislature to listen to their

Alleged Discrimination 

International Students Charge Jardine With Playing Favorites 

COLLEGIAN — Allegations of 
segregation within housing assign- 
ments brought Jardine Terrace 
Apartments, built for married stu- 
dents and families, to the forefront 
of campus controversies. 

Early in February, segregation 
accusations were brought to the 
attention of Charles Walters, jun- 
ior in pre-law and Jardine mayor, by 
international student residents. The 
residents said they had been dis- 
criminated against when the apart- 
ments were assigned. 

One complaint came from 
Abdellah Laytimi, graduate student 

in mechanical engineering. Laytimi 
said he and his wife had been as- 
signed to a newly renovated apart- 
ment, only to discover the apart- 
ment was no longeravailable. How- 
ever, the Laytimis later noticed stu- 
dents who moved in after them 
living in the renovated apartments. 
"They do give you a choice (of 
apartments), but when you go in 
there they say, 'This is all we have,' 
if you look shabby or foreign," 
Laytimi said. "You come to this 
country to learn different cultures 
and meet different people, but if 
- you put all the cultures together ( in 

separate housing arrangements), 
you don't learn anything." 

Susanne Tunstall, family housing 
coordinator for the Department of

requested to be placed together.

mostly by the way they request it," 
she said. "International students

NCAA Investigates Capriotti's Scholarship Fraud 

A spotless ath- 
letic program was 
scarred by the news 
of head track and 
cross country 
coach John 

Capriotti's con- 
scious infraction of 
NCAA rules. 
Capriotti con- 
fessed to altering 
scholarships for 
athletes and giving 
lem additional money from his own paycheck. 
More than $ 10,000 was altered and awarded 
legally to his team members. Capriotti said he 
lought it was the only way he could attract 

high-caliber athletes to K-State and keep them 

On Feb. 15, the Wichita Eagle reported the 
alleged actions of Capriotti. 

"There was never money to take care of the 
athletes the way they should be taken care of. I 
knew what I was doing was against NCAA 
rules," Capriotti said. "If we had had enough 
money in the budget, I wouldn't have been 
breaking NCAA rules." 

Capriotti resigned from K-State and left two 
nationally ranked cross country teams in No- 
vember to accept a position with Nike Inc. as a 
scout. A year before Capriotti's departure, former 
athletic director Steve Miller also left K-State to 
accept a job with Nike Inc. 

The Kansas State Athletic Department faced 

a full investigation of all its programs. The 
beginning of March brought the conclusion of 
the internal investigation led by Robert Snell, 
faculty athletic adviser and professor of civil 

The results were then forwarded to the 
NCAA for review and their conclusion. Snell 
would not comment on what he thought the 
outcome would be before the NCAA conducted 
their investigation. 

"It's in a holding pattern now. I don't know 
what they'll do," said Jim Epps, senior associate 
athletic director. "There are violations that go 
beyond the secondary variety. I would think that 
they would impose penalties. I don't know what 
it will be, and I don't want to speculate"

Rates Increase; Services Decrease 

COLLEGIAN - Due to a Febru- 
ary decision by the Department of 
Housing and Dining Services, stu- 
dents living in the residence halls 
will no longer receive free use of 
the laundry facilities beginning 
the fall of 1993. Dorm residents 
will pay 75 cents for the washer 
and 25 cents for the dryer. 

"We proposed this change to 
lower our overall rates. Otherwise, 
we would have had to increase the 
installments to more than $400," 
said Bob Burgess, assistant direc- 
tor of the Department of Housing. 

Besides the proposal to pay for 
laundry facilities, students will ex- 
perience an increase in their 

monthly payments. Installment 
payments were $360 for 1992-93. 
However, the rates were raised to 
$395 for 1993-94. 

"The laundry rates concerned 
me because I didn't want to pay for 
an increase in monthly payments 
and laundry services," said Nicole 
Wagner, junior in dietetics and 
third-year resident of Moore Hall. 
"The cost increase goes up about 
that much each year. I suppose 
the money is worth it because I'm 
close to campus, enjoy the pre- 
pared food and security, and (K- 
State) is still cheap compared to 
other Big Eight universities." 

The money gained from the 

laundry services was planned to be 
used to furnish equipment for exer- 
cise, computer and study rooms. 

"With the money from the 
laundry services, this will provide 
us with revenues to do equipment 
and facility upgrades," Burgess said. 

Despite the increased costs and 
the lack of free laundry facilities, 
Burgess said incoming students 
would not be hindered. 

"We hope the students will see 
the advantage of living in resi- 
dence halls to those students who 
live off campus. I don't think it 
(the changes) will affect any new 
students who will move into resi- 
dence halls."

Fatal Fall 

COLLEGIAN — Orma Linford, 
associate professor of political sci- 
ence, died Jan. 28 from injuries 
sustained after falling at her Man- 
hattan home. 

Linford had spent the last 27 of 
her 57 years at K-State, and former 
colleagues and students said she 
would be missed. 

"She always had an open door," 
said Michael Harders, senior in po- 
litical science and history. "She 
was compassionate and very witty. 
I consider this a huge loss to the 
University. It will be hard to re- 
place her." 

Before coming to K-State, 
Linford received her doctoral de- 
gree from the University of Wis- 
consin. She was promoted to asso- 
ciate professor of political science 
in 1979. For 10 years she was the 
director of the pre-law program in 
the College of Arts and Sciences. 
She also was a member of the Fac- 
ulty Senate. 

"She built the pre-law program 
here," said Michael Suleiman, pro- 
fessor of political science. "She was 
a dedicated teacher, a person of 
principles and someone who was 
always ready to help people who 
were disadvantaged."

Bosco works to recruit and retain freshmen 

e was identified as the man with purple pride. His 
office displayed memorabilia, and his actions and 
words reflected his pride in K-State. 

Pat Bosco, vice president for institutional ad- 
vancement, began his K-State career as a student 
in 1969. He was involved in leadership, serving as 
student body president in 1970-7 1 . With a bachelor's degree 
in elementary education and a master's degree in educational 
administration, Bosco continued to serve the students. 

"I'm a product of the University. It gave me a great deal 
of self-confidence. The people here 25 years ago were very 
impactful, and there's nothing I enjoy more _____ 
than promoting K-State," Bosco said. "I have 
personal satisfaction in telling people it's a great 

Bosco served as a leader of student life, 
educational and personal development programs 
and University relations. He was also respon- 
sible for providing leadership to the campus 
through services and programs outside the classroom. 

"My position is unique since it is the only one in the Big 
Eight," he said. "No one else has the opportunity or authority 
to deal with critical retention issues in specific areas such as 
housing, recreation, financial aid and leadership opportuni- 
ties critical to a student remaining at the University until 

Bosco said student retention fueled the success. 

"The key to success may not be recruitment, but rather 
retaining our students until graduation," Bosco said. "They're 
our success stories. Students feel they're not lost in the crowd. 
It is a unique niche in a competitive marketplace." 

In addition, Bosco played a role in establish- mmmmm ' — — — — — 
ing recruitment for K-State through the devel- BY LISA STAAB 

"We attract 25,000 
vistors to this major 
recruitment effort."

opment of admission representatives in 1986. 

"President (Jon) Wefald asked me to provide leadership in 
establishing recent graduates to serve as admission represen- 
tatives and communicate the programs available to high 
school students and their families," he said. "Imitation is the 
greatest form of flattery, and several of our competitors have 
started similar programs. The admission representatives have 
been a small effective piece in the complex enrollment 

Beyond his role of recruitment, Bosco organized three 
luncheons during the fall, each for 10-12 students. 
_____ "Visiting with random freshmen students is 

a way of getting past the student leaders," he 

said. "It gives me a chance to hear different 

perspectives of their initial experiences." 
Bosco also initiated the All-University Open 

House in the mid-'70s. 

"It became apparent that although we had 

good academic programs, we didn't have a Uni- 
versity event to promote the college," he said. "The Open 
House effort needed to be brought together, so I coordinated 
the programs which have become a model for other univer- 
sities. We attract 25,000 visitors to this major recruitment 

For Bosco, K-State's purple color represented a friendly, 
caring and responsive university. 

"For a big university to have our commitment to students 
is very special. It's easy for me to show my purple and my pride. 
I have a position that I can't believe I am paid to do," he said. 
"I have a chance to help my alma mater, have an impact on 
students and make a small effort for a better place to learn. 

There's times I wake up and reflect that I am a 

lucky person."

peers contact new students 

Students who were new to the cam- 
pus first semester received an unex- 
pected phone call from a complete 
stranger. Whatsome originally thought 
was a wrong number turned out to be 
a fellow K-State student who called 
them in conj unction with the K-State 
Cares program. 

K-State Cares was the brain child 
ofPatBosco, vice president for insti- 
tutional advancement. Bosco estab- 
lished the student-guardian program 
because of K-State's concern in re- 
cruiting and retaining students. 

"There is no other (program) like 
this in the country," Bosco said, refer- 
ring to the program where upperclass- 
men called new students. 

The incoming students were con- 
tacted between the fourth and sixth 
week of the semester to make sure they 

were adjusting to college life. 

"The first six weeks (of college) are 
the most critical," Bosco said, "and this 
program has provided us with valuable 
information in helping students adjust 
better to the University." 

The coordinator of K-State Cares 
was Pam Barnes, staff assistant for the 
dean of student life and senior in pre- 
medicine. Barnes was appointed to 
herposition two years ago. Shesaidthe 
program was beneficial to incoming 

"New students tend to be really 
intimidated," Barnes said. "It helps 
them to have their peers, rather than 
their designated advisers talk to them." 

Between 175-200 student ambas- 
sadors spent four evenings over a pe- 


riod of two weeks at the 50 telephones 
located at the Foundation Center. The 
deans of the various participating col- 
leges were usually present, as was 
Barnes, in case of a crisis. But the 
students didn't encounter any crisis 
situations, Barnes said. 

"Their real limitation is whether 
the students called are at home or not," 
Barnes said. "We are looking at about 
4,500 new students each semester, so 
even getting half is excellent." 

While the calling system was un- 
able to contact all new students, K- 
State Cares did reach everyone through 
the mail. The program's goal for future 
years was to help more than just new 

"We hope that through this pro- 
gram we will eventually be able to help 
all students at K-State," Barnes said. 

Displaying his purple 
pride, Pat Bosco, vice 
president for institu- 
tional advancement, 
relaxes in his office

Hall. Bosco was a K- 
State graduate and said 
he was a product of the

entomologists prepare insects for consumption 

ith the coming of Parents' Weekend, there 
were the usual campus tours, trips to 
Aggieville and the traditional football game, 
but some students opted for the extraordi- 
nary family adventure. 

Students and their parents who attended 
the Department of Entomology's open house were surprised 
by what they discovered. Along with displays of Madagascar 
hissing cockroaches, spiders and ticks native to Kansas and 
green bugs on sorghum, the entomology department pre- 
pared their specialty of insects for taste testing. 

"We came (to the open house) because my _____ 
dad wanted to look at the chocolate-covered 
bugs," said Deanna Tudor, junior in elementary 
education. "I took an entomology class last 
spring, and I really enjoyed that. Before I took 
that class, I never even came over here (to 
Waters Hall)." 

The McGrath family was also drawn to the 
open house because the insects were unique. 

"We came because dad likes to look at bugs. 
He's a bee keeper, so we thought we'd show him 
something other than bees," said Ann McGrath, senior in 
mechanical engineering. "Besides, it's a good thing to know 
about insects as food in case there is ever a nuclear holo- 

The featured attraction at the open house was an insect

entomophobia, and

items on display were canned honey bee babies and choco- 
late-covered ants. 

C. Michael Smith, head of the entomology department, 
was responsible for the insect concoctions. Smith became 
interested in preparing insects for consumption when he 
taught the course Insects and People in Idaho. 

"I got to reading about timely topics, and I discovered that 
entomophagy, the consumption of insects for food, has been 
around since John the Baptist in Bible times and much 
longer," Smith said. "I decided that if we were going to learn 
about it, let's cook some insects. All the students have 
n survived so far." 

Before cooking the insects, Smith put them 
in the freezer to kill them. Once the bugs were 
dead, he simply followed the recipe. 

"I usually boil them first," said Smith. "It's 
important that they are washed off thoroughly, 
and then I j ust fry them for about five minutes." 
Insects were not eaten regularly in the United 
States, and Smith only used his bug culinary 
skills on rare occasions. 

"I fix insects about once a year," Smith said. 
"I fix them for classes at school, and I've done demonstrations 
for elementary classrooms in the Kansas City area." 

When Smith presented his insect specialties, he was often 
the only one who ate. 

"Most people have entomophobia, and they are not 
interested in touching bugs, let alone eating them," Smith 
— — — said. "Learning to eat insects is just getting over 
CRANWELL that fear."

architecture grads choose to stay in Manhattan 

fter graduation, some architecture students stayed 
in Manhattan to build their own lives while 
designing other people's homes. 

Bruce McMillan, 1973 graduate 
in architecture, owned and operated 
two architectural firms in Manhat- 

tan and Junction City. 

After completing his undergraduate degree, 
McMillan continued his graduate studies in 
New Orleans, and Atlanta. Four years later he 
returned to Manhattan and completed his 
master's degree. 

McM illan, originally from the area sunound-

Although Aggieville was a popular place for 
college students, McMillan said he did not go there often. 
"I visit Aggieville infrequently, but I do enjoy eating at 
some of the Aggieville restaurants once in awhile for a meal," 
McMillan said. — — ^— 

Another graduate in architecture who re- BY 

sided in Manhattan was Brent Bowman, owner of Brent 
Bowman and Associates Architects. 

Bowman graduated in 1972 and left to pursue careers in 
the greater Kansas City area and Phoenix but 
moved back to Manhattan so his two children 
could grow up in a smaller city. 

"I came back to Manhattan because it is a 
good place to raise my family," Bowman said. 
"It's a nice community and a university commu- 

Bowman and his employees worked on and 
designed many local and University develop- 
ment projects. 

Two of his employees, Tracy Reynolds and 
Pat Schaub, were also K-State graduates in 

"We are currently working on Fanell Li- 
brary," Bowman said. "We also did Holton Hall 
and some downtown redevelopments." 

Migette Koup, graduate student in architec- 
ture, received her bachelor's degree from K- 
State in 1990. Koup worked for more than a year in Wichita 
before returning to Manhattan. 

"I like the size of Manhattan," Koup said. "There is a

"There are lots of educational opportunities with the campus, 
and the area is culturally diverse and active." 

The local scenery and continual community activities,

the area, Koup said. 

"The location of Manhattan in the Flint Hills makes it 
one of the most beautiful parts of the country," Koup said. 
"My husband and I enjoy the beauty in the area." 

Koup also said the campus offered programs for the

operas, musical performances and lectures by guest speakers. 

"There is a lot of outreach due to the campus," Koup said. 

She and her husband did not visit the students' night

attorney gives free legal advice 

11 students paid an activity fee, but most were 
unaware of services the fee provided. 

One fee service, limited legal aid, provided 
students legal counseling, limited representation, 
legal document preparation and appropriate re- 
ferrals through Legal Services. 

Because the office didn't advertise its services, Dianne 
Urban, an attorney for Legal Services since 1983, said 
students learned of the organization through word of mouth. 

Legal Services, controlled by the Student Governing 
Association, began in 1971 to help students 
understand their legal rights and responsibili- 
ties. Urban said she counseled students on nearly 
every type of legal matter including University- 
related problems such as cheating accusations, 
unfair grading and breaking the student con- 
duct code. 

"I probably see a lot more consumer, land- 
lord/tenant and University problems than a 
local attorney in private practice," she said. "I 
am the first attorney students should approach 
if they have no funds." client. 

Urban also gave advice on traffic offenses, crime, divorce, 
health insurance and immigration. She wrote wills, powers 
of attorney and contracts for students. 

Urban said if a student were accused of a crime, she would 
advise him or her of the right to remain silent. But with 
University problems, she helped students help themselves. 

"Regarding disputes with the University," «■—■————■— — 
she said, "I advise. I help students write letters, BY LISA STAAB 

"Anything my clients 
tell me is confiden- 
tial, and no one tells

but I do not make direct contact with University personnel. 
I help students serve as their own advocates." 

She also provided them copies of procedures and rules. 
"Anything my clients tell me is confidential, and no one 
tells me how to advise them," she said. "Ethical rules require 
that I be independent." 

Although she advised students, Urban did not have the 
power to sue. 

"The only time we have the power to sue is if the case is 
in the general interest of the student body as a whole," she 
— — said. 

Before Urban represented a student in litiga- 
tion, approval of the case was made by a board 
composed of the University attorney, a faculty 
member who was also an attorney, two students 
appointed by the student body president and the 
Legal Services' attorney. 

During the 1990-91 fiscal year, Urban ad- 
vised 924 students. But this number did not 
reflect phone calls, walk-ins, general informa- 
tion inquiries and repeated visits by the same 

Before joining Legal Services, Urban served as an assistant 
Riley County attorney and had her own legal practice. She 
said she was satisfied with her University job and enjoyed 
working with students. 

"I've met some fascinating people, and the university 
setting is great," Urban said. "I see many types of people, and 
I enjoy working with the students. The Univer- 
sity campus is a nice place to be."

internships spark employment opportunities 

hile working toward a degree, some students 
often felt their college education was nothing 
more than a blur of tests, projects and expen- 
sive books. However, a number of majors 
encouraged students to experience first-hand 
what their chosen career entailed. 

Through internships both in Manhattan and around the 
world, students worked to gain a better idea about their area 
of study. 

Not all students were required to participate in intern- 
ships, but many wanted to broaden their education and 
decide if they were happy in their chosen field of study. 

Shawn Potts, senior in animal sciences and industry, had 
an internship at Ward Feed Yard near Larned, Kan., during 
the summer. 

"Being from the grasslands of the Flint Hills, 

my only experience is with a cow/calf opera- 

tion," Potts said. "I wanted to know more about 
the industry, so I chose to work in a feedlot." 

He said the internship was beneficial, be- 
cause he gained knowledge through the experi- 

"I learned about the other aspects of the feed 
yard, but I spent most of my time in the process- 
ing shed," he said. "My job was to give the cattle 
coming in all the required vaccinations and ear 
tag them." 

Potts said he quickly learned what pleased his employer. 
On his first day, Potts helped move cattle past the office into 
nearby pens. Not realizing how proud his employer was of the 
lawn in front of the office, he allowed some of the cattle to 
eat the grass. He was quickly informed of his mistake. 

Students in animal sciences and industry received college 
credit for summer jobs that allowed them to work in every 
aspect of the business, said Calvin Drake, professor of animal 
sciences and industry. 

"There are no set requirements. As soon as I set some, it 
will keep someone from getting to do something they wanted 
to do," he said. 

Students in the department had internships with Iowa 
Beef Processors, Upjohn and American Breeding Services. 

But students didn't have to travel far for internships — 
some departments offered internships on campus. 

Speech pathology students worked in a laboratory on 
campus, and biology students worked at the Center for Basic 
Cancer Research in Ackert Hall. The biology student in- 
terns worked in the laboratory with a lab team in 

return fora scholars! up, said WilUamFeyerharm, BY DIANE 

"It gives them 
(students) a marked 
advantage in 
applying for a job." 
Gene McGraw 

associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. 

Heideh Fattaey, research assistant in the Center for Basic 
Cancer Research, received a scholarship to work in the lab in 
1984 and decided to stay after graduation. She studied the 
effect of cell growth inhibitor on DNA synthesis of cells. 

"Working in the lab gave me a good appreciation of what 
I learned as an undergraduate," Fattaey said. 

She said her research didn't feel like a j ob once she became 
involved in the lab. 

"Undergraduate opinions change about research once 
they do it," she said. "After you work in the lab, you don't feel 
as though you have to work a set number of hours — you 
actually want to come in and work." 

Fattaey's internship helped her decide she was happy in 
her chosen field. 

"Working in the lab gave me the incentive 

to continue in cancer research," she said. "It 

opens your eyes up to what you can do." 

Fattaey said working in the research labs was 
excellent hands-on experience because students 
could attend classes, receive up to four hours of 
credit and stay on campus. 

Students in the College of Arts and Sciences 
also participated in internship opportunities 
that varied from working in museums and police 
departments to design firms and newspapers. 
But other colleges also offered internships. Interior archi- 
tecture students were given the option of completing a 30- 
week internship during the spring and summer of their fourth 

"Students go out and test their capabilities in a regular 
office situation under the guidance of professionals," said 
Gene McGraw, professor of interior architecture. "After the 
intense nine-month experience, they look at their education 
themselves to see in their last year where they may do some 
fine-tuning or make adjustments." 

Interior architecture students have worked with firms 
such as the Disney Development Company and Union 
Pacific Railroad. 

"It gives them a marked advantage in applying for a job 
when they graduate, in that they have almost a year of 
experience," McGraw said. "They also get the chance to do 
a lot of networking with other firms." 

Drake agreed internships were beneficial to students. 
"Internships are an experience everyone should have," 
Drake said. "Even if the experience is bad, it is a learning 
— — — experience that will help the student when they 
DENISON get a job after graduation."

scientists search for dna fingerprints 

f the 254,000 greyhounds registered with the 
National Greyhound Association were stolen, 
the only methods available for recovering them 
would be physical descriptions and registration 


Three K-State professors in the 
College of Veterinary Medicine worked to 
change that. 

Since April 1992 they have researched 
a method to identify greyhounds through 
blood tests. 

A $38,000 grant from the Kansas Racing 
Commission was used by Deryl Troyer, asso- 
ciate professor of anatomy and physiology, 
Joseph Smith, professor of pathology and mi- 
crobiology, and Nathan Gabbert, associate 
professor of clinical sciences, to search for 
genetic signatures that would identify a grey- 
hound by using one of its relatives. Once they 
succeeded, a simple blood test could be used 
to reveal a positive identification. 

Greyhound racing was big business, and 
the standard method for identifying the dogs 
was inadequate. Dogs were tattooed on the 
ear, but this was unsuccessful in stopping dog thieves. 
Greyhounds were often found with the marked ear missing 
or decomposed so the tattoo was unreadable. The new 
method was designed to reveal the dogs' parentage. 

"Breeders want to know the true parentage ■—■—■— 
of the dogs they purchase," said Gary BY DIANE 

"We have worked 
with parentage by 
taking samples from 
litter mates, the dam 
and possible sires, 
and are trying to 
match them to- 
gether. It's been 
difficult because of 
the lack of diver- 

Deryl Troyer 

Guccione, secretary and treasurer of the National Grey- 
hound Association. 

Troyer said finding the DNA signature was not an easy task. 
"We have worked with parentage by taking samples 

from litter mates, the dam and possible sires, 

and are trying to match them together," Troyer 
said. "It's been difficult because of the lack of 

Finding the "DNA fingerprint" was diffi- 
cult because racing greyhounds were selected 
and bred for their speed, causing genetic vari- 
ability to be low. 

"The process we use requires that we 
collect blood or tissue and extract the 
DNA to purify it." Troyer said. "We then 
use PCR (polymers chain reaction) to 
amplify a small segment then separate the 
sizes. They are transferred to a membrane, 
and the probes are labeled. The probes are 
then allowed to hybridize so we can visu- 
alize the fragments." 

They tried six different PCR markers, but 
only one was effective. Markers were used to 
avoid genetic disorders because these disor- 
ders were linked to disease-causing genes. 

If successful, veterinarians could use blood samples to 
identify dogs, but these screenings would be expensive. 

"A cost-efficient way must be developed if owners are 
-^^^— going to be able to use this method effec- 
DENISQN tively," Troyer said.

interviews and resume workshops offered 

n-campus interviews offered by the Career Plan- 
ning and Placement Center in Holtz Hall were 
popular and benefited both students and employ- 



\^J "We bring employers on campus and expose 

them to topnotch candidates," said James Akin, 

Career Planning and Placement Center director. "We have 
about 325-500 on-campus interviews per school year." 

The Marketing Club worked with the center to coordi- 
nate Career Day and plan mock interviews. Over 56 compa- 
nies sent representatives so students of all majors could learn 
more about specific companies. 

"Career Day is an excellent way for the 
students to get in contact with the recruiter 
before an interview to find out if that is the 
company they are interested in," said Cristal 
Janovec, senior in marketing and Marketing 
Club assistant vice president of special products. 

After Career Day, mock interviews were 
available for juniors and seniors majoring in 
business. Thirteen companies interviewed and critiqued 
students with constructive criticism. 

"I gained experience for future interviews," said Barbie 
Strege, senior in marketing. "It was a great way to learn 
questions they ask and the format which interviews follow." 

The center was a gateway of career options for students 
who took time to see what the center offered. Dan Sommers, 
senior in chemical engineering, took advantage of several 
programs the center offered while searching for 
an internship opportunity. 

"I had someone at Holtz Hall look over my resume, and 
I've also interviewed there with companies such as Dow 
Chemical," Sommers said. "I was really impressed. I didn't 
think that the University would offer services like the Career 
Planning and Placement Center does." 

For many students, job searches started at Holtz. 
"It (the center) offers a larger exposure to the companies 
you want to interview with," said Dan Wicker, senior in 
accounting. "It was a benefit having companies come to K- 
State and look for students, rather than going out and looking 
for the companies." 

However, interviews were not the sole pur- 
pose of the center. The center also published job 
vacancies in bulletins and maintained a career 
and employer resource area consisting of over 
5,000 file folders, 200 video tapes and binders 
providing students information about various 

The goal of the center was training and 
assisting students in conducting a successful job 
search and helping them use potential resources. 

"We provide training for the job search and help develop 
skills needed to market one's self," said Tracey Fraser, assis- 
tant director of the center. 

Akin found personal satisfaction in helping students at 
the center. 

"The best reward is when a student comes in frustrated, 

and after we help them, they leave with a spring in their step

he was married to money. She devoted her life to 

Sone dollar — John Dollar, to be exact. 
For 38 years, John and Diane Dollar had spent 
their lives together, but each had a different story 
about how they first met. John said he was intro- 

duced to Diane through a friend of her mother's. 

Diane said she met John at Varney's Book Store in Aggieville 
while working as a salesclerk. 

"I often watched the side door or the front door," she said. 
"Whenever I saw someone good-looking come through the 
doors, I would hunch over and run behind the counter and 
pop up in front of them." 

Diane said John resembled Rock Hudson and 
was the best-looking man to walk into Varney's. 

That same evening, John called Diane to ask 
her out on a date. He said the rest of the story was 
history as they married in 1955. 

Both pursued teaching careers at the Uni- 
versity. John served as the College of 

Engineering's assistant dean and was also a 

professor of electrical engineering. He said he took the job to 
earn money. 

"Teaching at K-State was a matter of eating at that 
particular point in time," he said, "but after 3 2 years, I can say 
I enjoy it here." 

Diane, an art professor, became a teacher to keep active. 

"I was playing bridge one day with a group of friends when 
I decided I didn't want to do this the rest of my life," she said. 
"When I visited the campus the next day, I was ■— — — -— — — 
told if I enrolled as a graduate student, they BY DAVID PENKA 

"The secret to our 
marriage is seeing 
each other evenings 
and weekends." 
Diane Dollar 

would pay me to go to school and be a GTA (graduate 
teaching assistant) at the same time." 

Since teaching consumed the majority of their time, 
personal time was important to both John and Diane. 

"We try to see each other on weekends. We're not sociable 
with other people because we spend a lot of time together," 
she said. "The secret to our marriage is seeing each other 
evenings and weekends. Spending time together doesn't 
require the presence of other people, so when we're alone 
we're particularly quiet." 

Their schedules as teachers often caused conflicts. 
— — — "Sometimes our schedules don't mesh with 

one another's," John said. "However, we both 
enjoy what we are doing, so we work through 
the problems that come up." 

Both Dollars said they enjoyed their indi- 
vidual careers. 

John, who retired Jan. 17, 1993, said the 
increase from 950 students to almost 2,900 

students in the College of Engineering from 

1974 to 1982 was the highlight of his career. 

"Just being involved with the growth of the University as 
a student and faculty member is a highlight," John said. 

Diane said she also received personal rewards throughout 
her career. 

"Seeing my illustrations get published in children's books, 
and the fact that I enjoy what I do has been a personal 
achievement," she said. "I think everybody should major in 
^^^^— their hobby because then they are always hav- 
ing fun."

representatives recruit prospective students 

preading the purple pride. This was the mission of 

SK-State admissions representatives. 
The representatives were K-State graduates 
who shared their enthusiasm and experiences with 
high school seniors. They also helped with alumni 
events and prospective students' on-campus visits. 

"The program works because K-State is an easy product to 
sell," said Jan Puis, 1992 graduate in journalism and mass 
communications. "We're enthusiastic about the school, and 
we believe in it." 

Todd Huck, 1991 graduate in history, agreed. 

"My parents and siblings grew up at K-State, 
and I wanted to give something back," he said. 
"The representatives have the spirit to share 
with others." 

The admissions representatives' program was 
initiated in 1 986 by Pat Bosco, vice president for 
institutional advancement. Huck said repre- 
sentatives learned about the position through 
newspaper ads. Those interested had an application process 
to complete, followed by an interview for a chosen few. The 
representatives were chosen after the interviews and re- 
ceived three weeks of training in July. 

"The basic purpose is to believe in K-State and believe in 
purple," Puis said. 

Seven admissions representatives visited Kansas high 
schools as well as designated regions in Missouri, Nebraska, 
Colorado and Chicago. 

"We push the opportunity of a large university with a 
small campus atmosphere," Huck said. "It's a Big —~~~^^^~-"

supportive services and a friendly attitude of students, faculty 
and administrators. We want the students to know about K- 
State and emphasize the quality of academics." 

Creating a comfort zone was nearly as important as 
emphasizing academic quality. 

"We draw on our own experiences and share them with 
students. I emphasize that it is a comfortable campus, and it's 
an easy transition from high school," Puis said. "We've got 
the best of both worlds here, and a student won't get lost in 
the crowd." 

During the fall semester, the representatives spent three 
^— ^— or four days a week visiting high schools. They 
also presented programs in different areas and 
offered regional visits to the University for 
seniors. Students who visited K-State received 
a tour, met with Greek Affairs representatives 
and talked with advisers from their desired 

"We stress visiting the campus to check out 
the atmosphere," Huck said. "We like to encourage them to 
find out about their major. After the visit, a follow-up with 
the students is also very important. We don't want to give 
wrong information, so if we don't know, we find the right 
answer and call the student back." 

For prospective students who visited the campus, the 

recruiter was often the only personal tie they had to K-State. 

"We're supposed to be the familiar face for the new 

student. We offer direction to the students," Puis said. "It's 

never the same thing — never a day just like the day before. 

I meet a lot of people and 1 feel like we help them 

a lot. I really like what I do."

114 ### R.P. Coleman 

Coleman makes facts his business 

ept. 9, 1969, wasn't a memorable day for most 

S students, but for Richard P. Coleman, professor of 
marketing, it was a day of discovery. On that day, 
he decided to start using orange juice concen- 
trate. In June 1981, he chose Minute Maid as his 

preferred brand. The man who remembered such 

detailed facts prided himself on remembering students' names. 

"I couldn't teach a class full of faceless and nameless 
people," Coleman said. "I decided to learn the names of my 
students and something about them as individuals." 

Each student who took one of Coleman's classes was 
required to write a personal paper about them- 
selves and their most recent purchasing deci- 
sions. After reading their papers, Coleman pulled 
out his Royal Purple yearbook, looked the stu- 
dent up and began memorizing their identities. 
The information was reinforced by a follow-up 
interview with Coleman because interaction 
with students was crucial for him to successfully 
teach his courses. 

Coleman was known to schedule meetings and engage- 
ments for precise times of the day — times like 12:08 for a 
lunch date or 11:34 for the starting time of a meeting. 

"I am more precise than the average person," Coleman 
said. "It makes life more interesting." 

Coleman also conducted meetings for his students in his 
meticulously decorated house. He went to great lengths to 
make sure every detail was attended to, including keeping 
the furniture looking like new. 

Doug Drottz, senior in business administra- ^^— — ^^--^— 
tion, went to Coleman's house for a meeting and BY STEPHANIE HOELZEL 

"I couldn't teach a 
class full of faceless 
and nameless 
Richard P. Coleman 

was impressed by the exact order he found. 

"His (Coleman's) house was spotless. Everything had its 
own place." Drottz said, "It's as though every plant had just 
the right amount of leaves for the room it was in." 

Coleman paid careful attention to details when he bought 
his house. 

"I wanted to find a place close to campus so my students 

would have easy access, that way they would be able to have 

meetings and turn in assignments to me without having to 

drive all the way out of town," Coleman said. "Plus, I wanted 

to be close to campus to stay involved." 

— — Coleman was known for his detailed studies 

of social classes and social living areas around 

the country. Social class maps hung on the walls 

of his house. The maps had intricate color blocks 

highlighting the different social areas. 

"He has tremendous knowledge of social 

classes. This was apparent with the maps and his 

in-depth discussions on the topic," Drottz said. 

Coleman was close to his students. He found 

out about their previous school records and test results. He 

was the professor who wanted to know everything about 


"I have been a judge for eight of the last 1 2 homecomings," 

Coleman said. "It shows people think I am a good judge of 

character and that I judge people well. It might even be that 

I am a bit of a gossiper and know what the people are like." 

Details were an important part of Coleman's life. They 

provided him with vivid images to remember things by. From 

orange juice to student names, he remembered 

them all.

KSDB features news and music for listeners 


he compact disc player counted down the remain- 
ing seconds of the song. To avoid dead air time, 
the disc jockeys flipped switches on while turning 
others off. At the same time, they adjusted the 
volume control levers. This process of switching 
songs and identifying the artists was repeated 
constantly at KSDB-FM 91.9. 

Located on the third floor of McCain Audito- 
rium, DB92, the campus radio station, was oper- 
ated by students from different academic areas. 
Doug Kohlhase, junior in journalism and 
mass communications, and Kevin O'Connor, 
senior in architectural engineering, were on the 
air with "Porthole to Your Weekend," on Friday 
afternoons from 3 to 6 p.m. Kohlhase and 
O'Connor played music from both the play list 
and listeners' requests. 

Kohlhase said personal tastes did not influ- 
ence the play list because polling procedures 
monitored the music. 

"We have a lot of requests that we play," Kohlhase said. 
"That is how we can deviate from the play list." 

Requesting songs was easy, but finding them was more 
difficult. Sometimes the music was not on hand for the 
announcers to play because the station switched music. 

"We were always willing to play requests, but sometimes 
we couldn't find them or they were not here to be played," 
O'Connor said. ^^^^~ 

DB92 was divided into six different areas, 

each run by students. All of the areas had student directors 
and assistant directors who organized the department. 

Jim Johnson, senior in journalism and mass communica- 
tions and music director, wrote the play lists for the announc- 
ers to follow. He received 15-20 new albums daily as promo- 
tional materials. Johnson and his assistants listened to sug- 
gested tracts and entire albums to determine what to play. 
Angie Fenstermacher, senior in journalism 
and mass communications, and Kerri Ryan, 
junior in fine arts, co-directed the promotions 
department. They organized remote broadcasts, 
prepared advertisements for upcoming concerts, 
put together promotional giveaway packages 
and secured underwriters to sponsor public events. 
"It was really a good experience for me," 
Fenstermacher said. "It gave me the chance to 
use some of what I learned in my public relations 
classes. I got to see how things were really done." 
The Black Student Union had the program 
"Jam the Box" during the lunch hour. This was a 
combination of hip-hop, rhythm and blues and rap music. 
"Jam the Box" began as a night show, but was rescheduled as 
a two-hour lunch segment after attracting a large audience. 

"We had to promote and publicize 'Jam the Box' for 

BSU," Fenstermacher said. "It was fun working on plans for 

informing the students of the new change in programming."

news anchor staff. She said the biggest task she faced was 
making sure her anchors read the news on time. 

"If they weren't there, I would have to read it myself," Lietz 
said. "It was really hectic at the beginning of the year before 
I had the spots filled. 
That was when I had 
to anchor a lot." 

Working at DB92 
provided students a 
chance to anchor ra- 
dio news. 

"It's a tremendous 
opportunity for stu- 
dents to get experience 
in radio," Lietz said. 
"Students don't real- 
ize how good it looks 
for them to have 
worked at the station. 
It looks especially good 
on their resumes." 

The sports director 
also had to make sure a trained student was available to work 
the equipment at various sporting events. He handled the 
scheduling of play-by-play broadcasting teams to high school 
games as well as collegiate competitions. 

Students in various j ournalism and radio/tele v is ion classes 
assisted the news and sports directors as they read on-air 
sports and newscasts. This allowed for more student partici- 
pation in the station. 

Joe Montgomery, station manager for DB92, kept an eye 
on the station. Montgomery said he made sure all the 
students stayed within the legal boundaries of the station and 
the Federal Communications Commission. 

"There are certain regulations and requirements that 
have to be enforced," Montgomery said. "If it meant taking 
serious action to get the students to learn, then it had to be

Regulations required students to give legal identification 
of the station in the first five minutes of each hour, before the 
CNN report. Students also had to follow the song lists and 
obey rules established by the Federal Communications Com- 
mission and station rules established by Montgomery. 

"The main rule everybody has to follow is the station ID 
at the top of the hour and the obscenity laws," said Gary "the 
Weedman" Weed, senior in journalism and mass communi- 
cations and an- 
nouncer. "These regu- 
lations are read by ev- 
eryone and a copy is

people to use." 

monitored the stu- 
dents who worked at 
the station, and was 
the only full-time, paid 
employee. He was also 
the only non-student 
the station employed. 
"We would like to 
be able to compensate 
all of the students for 
their work, but it just 
isn't possible," Montgomery said. "Instead, we try to give 
them promotional materials and music for their time and 

The station invested in a new automated control board 
for the studio. This helped to simplify the announcers' 
routines. The control board put all of the knobs, switches and 
levers on one easy-to-reach board. 

"Having the new control board will help out a lot," Weed 
said. "We won't have to reach over each other anymore." 
Running a station took time and effort, Montgomery said. 
The station remained open year around. 

"Finding people to work the intercessions and throughout 
the summer was tough because we just didn't have the 
amount of interested students available," Montgomery said. 
"This was when I would have to find people myself or fill in 
for the positions that were not filled."

Q : What were your career goals when younger ? 

A: 1 wanted to make a real difference to society, 
preferably evidenced by a Nobel Peace Prize 
but certainly not to be an administrator. 

Q: Where did you attend college? 

A: I received my bachelor's degree from Imperial 
College , the University of London and doctor- 
ate from Cambridge University. 

Q: What is your favorite stress-relieving food? 
A: I especially like a large Kansas steak and a 

distilled malt beverage from Scotland — not 

necessarily in that order. 

Q: How many times did you change your 
major in college? 

A: No, this was not an option in the British 
system. When I went to college , I chose math' 
ematics and specialized in that subject with our 
general education requirements. It only took 
three years which meant 1 knew a lot more 
about mathematics but a lot less about life. 

Q: Describe yourself in three words. 

A: If you won't let me say tall, dark and hand- 
some, then either quiet, reserved Englishman 
or cool, calm, collected.

psychology experiments uncover thoughts 

nxious students stood in a row outside the testing 
room. They cringed as muffled shrieks erupted 
from behind the heavy black door. Peering through 
the keyhole, one student with a quavering voice 
reported subjects were shocked if they gave false 
answers. Backing away from the door, he told the 
terrified crowd the experiment was conducted by a scientist 
with an Einstein hairdo and a Jeckel-and-Hyde demeanor. A 
faint, "Get out while you still can!" echoed through the 
hallway as the student raced past the shocked crowd. 

Scenarios such as this were the product of 
fanciful horror stories — not real K-State psy- 
chology experiments. The most dangerous ob- 
ject used in experiments was a pencil. Surveys, 
questionnaires and forms composed a good por- 
tion of the studies in which general psychology 
students were required to participate. 

"It didn't even take me 20 minutes to answer 
all the questions. I picked a time to do the 
experiment when I didn't have class, so it wasn't an incon- 
venience," said Shari Olson, freshman in secondary educa- 
tion. "Twenty minutes of your time twice a semester is a lot 
better than writing a report." 

The experiment designers spent far more than 20 minutes 
when they created a study. The designers were upper-level 
psychology majors who suffered disappointments when their 
endeavors did not go well. 

"My experiment on serial recall took a long time to complete. 
I came up with the idea in October 1991 and — — ^— 
finished it in September 1992. It shouldn't have BY TR1NA 

"Subjects shouldn't

tion before."

taken that long," said Jeff Gibbons, graduate student in psychol- 
ogy. "The first time I ran it, I screwed up. I showed the subjects 
nine letters and then I said, 'Go.' This caused a suffix effect (a 
memory block). The subjects couldn't remember the last one or 
two letters, so I had to run the whole thing again. That time I 
tapped them on the shoulder to tell them to start." 

Appearance was also a maj or contributor to an experiment's 
success. Sophie Urban-Breeskin, graduate student in psy- 
chology, found her first experiment more complicated than 
she originally anticipated. Not only did she have to perform 
preliminary studies, but she also had to prepare 

"Subjects shouldn't know you've never done 
experimentation before. You should appear like a 
psychologist — under control. When it's your first 
time, that's hard to do," Urban-Breeskin said. "Dr. 
Shanteau (professor of psychology) told me what 
to wear. I had to look professional — I couldn't 
wear what I normally would wear to class. I even 
wrote out my instructions ahead of time so I'd know what to say." 
Once the data was collected, it was not always used for a 
specific purpose. Experiments such as the study on attitudes 
of the homeless conducted by Steve Quackenbush, graduate 
student in psychology, had a different goal. 

"In a study like this, we're acting in much the same way as 
a pollster. A pollster is interested in gathering information 
about political preferences. They're not concerned directly 
with practical applications of the data," Quackenbush said. 
— — — "We're also interested in gathering data. What 
HOLMES people use it for is up to other people."

Wefald leads drive for art museum funding 

hen Jon and Ruth Ann Wefald joined K- 
State in 1 986, the University not only gained 
a new president, but a crusader for a campus 
art museum. 

As an art lover, Ruth Ann was concerned 
with K-State's standing as the only Big Eight 
school without an art museum. 

"When we came to K-State, I said to Jon ___^^_ 
that the art museum is something I wanted to 
work on," she said. "I immediately started to 
investigate the potential for an art museum. 
I've been interested in art all my life." 

In 1928, the K-State Art Collection began 
with the single donation of two Birger Sandzen 
paintings. Through the years, the collection 
had grown to contain 1,500 pieces of art, in- 
cluding works by Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, 
Salvador Dali and Gordon Parks. 

"The strength of the art collection is 20th 
century American art, with an emphasis on 
Midwest regionalists," said Nelson Britt, museum director. 
"It includes work by Thomas Hart Benton, John Steuart 
Curry and Grant Wood." 

However, the University lacked a place to — ^^^— 
display the art. Some hung in administrators' BY RENEE 

offices, but over 40 percent was placed in storage at the 
Foundation Center. 

"K-State has an art collection, but where do you go to see 

it? It's literally being kept in the closet," Wefald said. "Many 

works are in storage, but some are at home and some are in 

campus offices. The number one benefit from an art museum 

will be the fact it (the art collection) will be 


"I immediately 
started to investi- 
gate the potential 
for an art museum. 
I've been interested 
in art all my life." 
Ruth Ann Wefald 

Since many people were unaware of the col- 
lection, Wefald's first goal was to promote to 
surrounding communities. 

"I can't take credit for the whole idea (of an 
art museum), but I helped heighten awareness," 
Wefald said. "I guess you could call me a cheer- 
leader for art. We (the art committee) took a 
slide show, called 'Celebrate Art at K-State,' to 
alumni and tooted our own horn about our 
collection. Then we told them about our unmet 
need and the lack of a museum." 

The art committee recruited people to host 
events in their communities to gain support for a campus art 
museum. The campaign received a boost when it was in- 
cluded in the Essential Edge Campaign, a KSU Foundation 
— — fundraiser with a goal of $ 100 million.

"A feasibility process identified areas people were inter- 
ested in donating money toward," said Gary Hellebust, 
director of Corporate and Foundation Rela- 
tions. "The art museum surfaced as a priority." 

Hellebust said a goal of $5 million was set, 
with construction scheduled to begin once the 
goal was reached. Ross Beach helped the cam- 
paign with his $2 million contribution made in 
honor of his wife, Marianna. The Beaches were

Jessica Reichman, art curator, said the art museum site 
was approved, and a committee was in the process of 
selecting the architects. 

"We have designated the whole southeast campus as a 
■^— ^^ zone," Reichman said. "It will be strictly up to 
the architects as to where the exact place will 
be. The decision will not be made until spring 
1993, with completion of the museum in the 
summer of 1995." 

Britt said the art museum would benefit 
both students and the community. 

"We will have lectures and demonstrations," 
Britt said. "There will be an art classroom that 
children can visit, and four exhibition galleries 
will display the permanent collection. With a 
museum, an audience will finally be able to 
appreciate the collection." 

Wefald said the art museum would also 
focus attention on the University. 
"Our art will give us the potential to bring a wider 
audience to campus," she said. "The art museum will be a 
magnet bringing people to K-State."

hands-on experiments influence opinions 

pinions about the laboratory were as varied as 

Madonna's sex partners. While some students 
welcomed the challenges labs afforded them, 
others participants had a workout sweating over 
some of the experiments forced on them. 

Principles of Biology was an introductory course 

required for a variety of degree programs. The 
four-hour lab class had every type of student 
enrolled from first-year to non-traditional. As 
an essential part of the learning process, each 
student was required to attend two hours of lab 
every week in addition to a recitation class. 

The laboratory was set up in a large open area 
on the second floor of Ackert Hall. Rows of 
cubicles containing audio cassette players and 
headphones at each students' space uniformly filled the 
room. Although the lab did not have an instructor, there 
were several student lab assistants who were there to help out 
and answer questions. 

Pamela Jackson, sophomore in human de- 
velopment and family studies, enrolled in Prin- 
ciples of Biology as part of her degree program

didn't help me at

While she enjoyed the flexibility of the audio cassette 
arrangement, she also appreciated the availability of a script 
for the tape. 

"I found that the tapes worked well for me because it 
provided both audio and visual learning," Jackson said. 
The laboratory also provided Jackson the hands-on expe- 
rience she felt was necessary to learn the test 
i i material. 

"The lab experience definitely helped my 

comprehension of the material discussed in 

recitation," Jackson said. "For ascience credit, it 

is the best way to learn because you are on your 

own and do the work yourself, yet the assistants 

help you learn the testable material if you need 


Not all students liked the lab arrangement as much as 

Jackson. Amy Hartis, sophomore in elementary education, 

was also enrolled in the course. 

"I hated the tape format. They made it so boring and 
impersonal," Hartis said. "I would rather have a 
huge lecture class than listen to those tapes."

Even though Hartis did not enjoy every aspect of the 
biology lab, it did provide her the chance to learn what she 
could not receive from the text, such as the viewing of real 
animal internal organs. 

"Dissecting the pig fetus was a lot of fun. Seeing the 
internal organs for myself made a lot of difference," she said. 
"You can only learn so much from a diagram in the book." 

Every course had a different laboratory arrangement due 
to differences in teaching styles. Hartis was also required to 
take General Chemistry. 

The setup was more structured than the biology lab and 
did not allow her to work at her own pace. 

"I felt that the lab didn't help me at all, so I was only 
wasting my time. I just wanted to finish the experiments and 
leave," Hartis said. "I relied completely on the lecture to 
comprehend the material for the tests. Even though the 
experiments didn't help me learn anything new, they did 
require me to review and memorize the information for the 

It wasn't just science classes that required laboratory 
exercises. Several foreign language courses also demanded 
regular attendance in a weekly lab. 

Roberta Weil, freshman in English, was enrolled in French 
I , which required work in the laboratory located in Eisenhower 

Similar to the biology arrangement, the foreign language 
lab had cubicles with headphones. However, students were 
not only listening, but also repeating words along with the 
cassettes. Weil said these lessons helped her learn the funda- 
mentals of French, her third language. 

"The lab helps reiterate what I have learned in class 
through listening and speaking and putting what you learn 
into practice," she said. 

Weil also said the assistance offered to students in the 
laboratory was helpful. 

"There is a- student lab monitor who is almost always 
willing to help the students if problems arise," Weil said. 
"I think that having to go in twice a week encourages me to 
learn more as we go instead of waiting until test time to

professor has knack with names 


om Parish, professor in counseling and educa- 
tional psychology, committed to memory the 
names and faces of his 300 plus students each 

His interest in learning students' names began 16 
years ago when he first came to K-State and was 

introduced to large classes. 

That interest intensified seven years ago when his daugh 
ter entered kindergarten. 

"As we drove by the elementary school she 
was about to attend and saw the students playing 
outside at recess, she said, 'Daddy, those are my 
friends. I just don't know their names yet,'" 
Parish said. 

Parish said his daughter's philosophy could 
be applied to teaching. 

"It's important teachers understand they 
might only teach students for a semester, but 

that their students could be their friends for a 

lifetime," Parish said. "A friend, of course, is someone who 
helps you like yourself, and a good teacher is a friend who will 
listen to a student's concerns and take action accordingly." 

Parish said some people questioned the need to learn 
students' names, suggesting it was a waste of time, but for 
Parish it was a benefit to know his students so he could teach 
them better. 

Teaching gave Parish an opportunity to have a positive 
affect on more than 700 students annually. 

To become familiar with his students before 
the first day of classes, Parish looked through the DY LISA oTAAB 

"If I could give 
anyone a gift, I 
would give them 
the great love of 

Tom Parish 

Royal Purple yearbook to learn their names, maj ors and other 
information such as sorority/fraternity association and sports 

"To me, it is a matter of doing my homework," Parish said. 
"It is going beyond the material to learn my students' names 
and something about them." 

Since 1980, Parish has taken class pictures of his students 
and put them in albums. He also saved any related newspaper 
clippings, wedding announcements and other mementos 
from students. 

Besides teaching from the textbook, Parish 
discussed real-life experiences with his students 
in order to share some of the personal lessons he 
had learned. 

"Both approaches are forms of teaching," he 
said, "though the latter is often enjoyed more by 
almost everyone." 

Parish said teaching was the best j ob he could 
"There is nothing I love more than teaching, not even 
breathing. It has always been such a joy to be around students, 
and there is no other place I would rather be than in the 
classroom," he said. "If I could give anyone a gift, I would give 
them the great love of teaching." 

Parish's only regret was the short time he had to develop 

a camaraderie with his students, but the benefits outweighed 

the disadvantages. Parish said he was glad he was a teacher. 

"If I died and all I had ever done was teach, I would still be 

quite happy since I believe there is no greater 

call than teaching," he said.

education mentors guide prospective students 

witching to the other side of the desk, education 

S majors gained teaching experience before enter- 
ing the world of education. 
The Junction City High School collaboration 
program combined theory and practice as stu- 
dents worked with public school teachers to pro- 
mote multicultural understanding and diversity in education. 

"The general goal of the collaboration is to strengthen 
American high school education by synthesizing the strengths 
of high school teachers, administrators and programs with 
the strengths of the K-State teacher education program," 
said Rosemarie Deering, assistant professor of 
secondary education. "We are drawing upon 
the expertise of teachers because we respect 
their contribution to education." 

Throughout the semester, students observed 
and tutored students, designed lesson plans, 
conducted meetings and organized classroom 
interaction. Deering said students were assessed 
on a summarized evaluation from the teacher. 
The students also completed journals reflecting their obser- 
vations of classroom management, student behavior, stu- 
dent characteristics, discipline and teacher preparation.

"The K-State secondary education population is very 
homogenous, with little diversity among students and fac- 
ulty," she said. "It seemed important students have the opp- 
ortunity to be involved in cultures that differ from their own. 
Our particular collaboration owes its uniqueness to the dis- 
parate environment between K-State and Junction City 
High School." 

Deering said effective teachers needed to 
have an understanding of their students. 

"We need to become acquainted with di- 
verse populations to observe their learning styles 
and cultures, and realize their differences are 
differences rather than faults," Deering said. "In 
addition to providing for pre-service teachers 
and bridging the communication between the 
University and high school, we are encouraging 
minority students to develop an interest in teacher." 

The collaboration was judged a success by the National 
Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, the 
program's participants and Deering. 

"The students love the collaboration because it's a vital 
part of their class. By combining our talents and resources, we 
believe we can offer both high school and University pre- 
service teachers a more multi-dimensional experience," 
Deering said. "Since the whole is greater than the sum of its 
parts, we envision a partnership that will promote qualitative 
■ improvements and creative, new dimensions in 
STAAB both school settings."

instructors find strength in the written word 

ome professors went beyond the walls of the 

S classroom and into the world of publishing as they 
not only taught, but also wrote textbooks, study 
guides and plays for publication. 
David Seamon, professor of architecture, wrote 

scholarly works focusing on architecture and 

engineering design. In his early childhood, Seamon realized 
the career he wanted to pursue. 

"I knew I was going to be a writer when I was 
five," Seamon said. "I was swinging, and I had a 
vision I would be a professor and a writer. I could 
just picture it." 

Judith Zivanovic, professor of speech and 
associate dean of the College of Arts and Sci- 
ences, wrote her first play in the sixth grade, but 
said she had no related vision of her future. 

"When I was a kid, my friends and I would go 
to films and then act it out the rest of the week," 
Zivanovic said. "I always thought of myself as an 
actress instead of a writer because acting is what 
I was doing as I played." 

Regardless of what their childhood predicted, each de- 
cided writing would enhance their teaching. They also said 
teaching complemented their writing. 

"At one point in my career they asked me to teach a 
playwright class," Zivanovic said. "I thought I had to do that 
(write a play) to fully understand it." 

Seamon also found his classroom work helped him refine 
the ideas for his books. ^^^^^^

of a book," Seamon said. "If I have a chapter I want to write, 
I can talk it through during a lecture." 

Even though Seamon's lectures often focused on his 

textbook ideas, he didn't depend on his books to teach class. 

"Sometimes I use my books in upper- level seminar classes," 

he said. "I don't use them regularly because I try to change my 

lecture or else it will become stale." 

Zivanovic said she did most of her writing during the 
"~— ™~~ summer. She traveled to Taos, N.M., to take 
part in an art colony, where she finished the first 
draft of a novel and prepared four short plays for 

Because preparing tests and structuring lec- 
tures was a time- consumingprocess, early morn- 
ings, weekends, holidays and most of the sum- 
mer were times Seamon used for writing. 

Seamon was writing a book series entitled 
"Morning Side Additions," which he said was 
valued as a supplementary textbook. 

"State University of New York and Albany 
liked it so much that they asked me to become 
editor of the book series," Seamon said. "I am currently 
editing books from other authors and I hope to finish the 
series this summer." 

Seamon proved his writing ability when he had a book 
published in 1985, and in 1989 Columbia University Press 
wanted to reprint the textbook. 

"It's hard to get books reprinted, so it was quite a coup for 
^^^^— me to have Columbia University reprint 'Dwell-

To obtain a degree, applicants were required

ate program," she said. 

In graduate study, the school offered 60 master's and 42 
doctoral programs. The diverse areas of study 
included atomic physics, cancer biology, cre- 
ative writing, industrial and organizational psy- 
chology and statistics. 

Warren said the graduate program devel- 
oped students' knowledge through advanced 
course work and through original research under 
the guidance of faculty members who were ex- 
perts in their fields. 

"A graduate education allows for more spe- 
cialization of a person's field or closely related 
discipline," he said. "It doesn't mean someone 
doesn't aspire to be educated in all disciplines. It 
just means they have become more specialized 
in their field." 

The estimated tuition cost per semester for a 
Kansas resident was $61 per credit hour, com- 
pared to $49 for an undergraduate degree. The 
Office of the Registrar reported that there were 
3,277 students enrolled in Graduate School in 
the fall of 1992. 

The difference in a master's degree and doc- 
toral degree was the number of required hours. 

"The doctoral program has higher expecta- 
tions for a graduate degree and is more competi- 
tive," Warren said. "The master's degree is virtually less 
important in some fields, yet is more adequate because

means they have

leland Warren 

certain fields don't offer doctorates." 

To obtain a master's degree, a student needed 30 credit 
hours beyond the bachelor's degree. For a doctorate, 90 hours 
more than the bachelor's degree was required. 

A crucial part of the process involved preparing and 
publishing a research study in the form of a thesis or disserta- 
tion. The study then had to be defended before 
faculty members. 

Conway was required to complete a 
practicum for every 12 credit hours she earned 
and write a journal about her experience. In 
addition, she took several core psychology 
courses and was quizzed on her knowledge by 
four advisers in an oral comprehensive test. 

Warren said the dissertation was often the 
size of a book that reflected the student's time 
and efforts by its length. 

"The student also takes a qualifying exam to 
determine if he or she is qualified in the field to 
continue the dissertation. In any case, the stu- 
dent will locate a specific topic for investiga- 
tion," Warren said. "Once completed, the com- 
mittee approves the form of the dissertation, 
signs it and sets a date for defense of the disser- 

During the presentation, the student gave a 
brief synopsis that lasted 10-30 minutes and 
could be questioned by the committee, who

class stresses importance of relationships 

he talked about sex. She talked about relation- 

S ships, sexually transmitted diseases and gender 
roles. Her focus was not on the sexual act, but 
rather on the importance of sexuality as being 
basic to human life. 
Betsy Bergen, associate professor of human devel- 
opment and family studies, developed and taught You and 
Your Sexuality since 1972 to help students understand 
different aspects of sex. 

"I did my doctorate research on the sexuality and human 
behavior of college students," Bergen said. "Na- 
tionally, most universities were beginning to 
teach sexuality. We got the course approved 
through the University level and eventually 
offered a graduate level class on this campus." 

Bergen said the first time the class was offered 
only 35 students enrolled. 

"The climate of the University was appre- 
hensive to teach this on the college level," she 
said, "so the class was offered at 8:30 a.m. to not attract too 
many students." 

However, Bergen continued to teach the class each 
semester, and the enrollment average grew to about 200 
students per semester. 

"The class tends to have students from across the Univer- 
sity," she said. "The fall semester had 26 percent males and 
74 percent females. The proportion of males is increasing, 
which is a positive statement. Men and women should have 
equal sex education." 

Bergen, who shared anecdotal stories during 
her lectures, never felt embanassed. 

"My concern is the 
sexual stereotype 
— the focus is not 
on the sex act." 
Betsy Bergen 


"There is no embarrassment for me teaching the class, and 
I don't purposely try to embarrass anyone," she said. "Each 
student has his or her own sexuality level and deals with 
sexuality differently." 

She said her stories helped students understand and 
remember the material which she said was important. 

"I certainly see it as a valuable course to be taught. You 
have to be comfortable with your own sexuality, and I have 
to be knowledgeable to teach the class," Bergen said. "My 
concern is the sexual stereotype. We focus on the sociologi- 
cal, psychological, physical, personal and inter- 
personal aspects of sex." 

Bergen's lectures covered variations of dat- 
ing, development of sexuality, anatomy, preg- 
nancy, sexual assault and violence, Kansas' sex 
laws and relationships. 

"I really enjoyed the class because Dr. Bergen 
discussed a lot of good issues — not j ust sex issues 
but relationships, homosexuality and commu- 
nication," said Meg Pfannestiel, senior in business adminis- 
tration. "She ( Bergen ) said that at the end of the semester the 
males would have a better understanding of females and 
females would have a better understanding of males." 

Teaching students to understand each other was a chal- 
lenge for Bergen. 

"Sexuality is an emotional topic because there's a little 

nervousness. I try to create a climate that is positive. I include 

humor in good taste," Bergen said. "Besides, sex is funny. 

Sexuality can be both a fun and a serious part of 

our lives and we should act responsibly because 

there can be severe consequences if we don't."

protesters respond to possible program cuts 

tudents in the speech pathology and audiology 

S program and the public administration graduate 
program were angry about the proposed elimina- 
tions of their programs. 
Aproposal issuedNov. 20 recommended elimi- 

nating the speech pathology and 

audiology degree program, reducing the number 
of social work faculty and eliminating the public 
administration graduate program. 

Peter Nicholls, dean of the College of Arts 
and Sciences, said the Kansas Board of Regents 
required state institutions to evaluate programs. 

"All material was submitted toafaculty commit- 
tee, which had student representation," Nicholls 
said. "They came up with some criteria to figure out 
what was going to happen to some of the programs." 

The proposal was not made hastily. The Arts 
and Sciences College Core committee spent 
more than 100 hours meeting before completing 
its recommendations. The propoal was then sent 
to the provost committee. Provost J amesCoffman 
made recommendations to President Jon Wefald, who sent 
the final recommendations to the Board of Regents. 

The proposal upset students enrolled in the programs. 

"This kind of process is not unusual these days," said Ann 
Smit, director of speech pathology and audiology. "You use it 
to cut weak programs, but they are cutting a healthy one. It is 
generally acknowledged we have a high-quality 
program. Student demand has doubled." 

"In terms of where 
we need to meet 
our resources and 
get our highest 
priorities defined, 
we don't find 
speech pathology 
and audiology on 
that list." 
Dean Peter Nicholls 


Nicholls said the University had to use its resources to 
benefit the greatest number of students. 

"In terms of where we need to meet our resources and get our 
highest priorities defined, we don't find speech pathology and 
audiology on that list," he said. "When you phase out a program, 
there are going to be effects on a range of people." 
Many students said the elimination of the 
speech pathology and audiology program and the 
cut in the social work program would effect a large 
number of female students. 

"They are targeting helping professions. Pre- 
dominantly, women work in those fields," said 
Melissa Schmidt, senior in speech pathology and 
audiology. "Therefore, they are targetingwomen." 
Some students questioned why the social 
work program was not eliminated. 

"The proposal never was to eliminate social 

work. There were differences seen as we looked at 

these two programs," Nicholls said. "One of the 

differences was the cost. They are both expensive 

programs. However, we have a strong social work 

program that has been well integrated into other programs. There 

would be effects clear across the campus if we did away with it." 

Nicholls said the Board of Regents had the final decision for 

adopting the proposal. 

"This has been a difficult process," Nicholls said. "I think 
it's a process we have to go through. We went through it with 
good faith and a great deal of effort. I believe in 
the outcome of that process."

The new Aeronautical Technology Center 
addition was completed in the summer of 1992. 
This project was funded by the Salina Airport 
Authority through building revenue bonds. The 
aeronautical technology department had also 
signed a contract with McDonnell-Douglas to 
train international students in aircraft 

Jack Henry, dean of the Salina campus, said 
these new improvements were essential to at- 
tract more students, and to reach their goal of 
doubling the student body in five years. 

"We are trying to focus more on the tradi- 
tional student and improve the looks of the school so it feels 
like a traditional campus," Henry said. 

Michelle Garrett, freshman in the College of Technol- 
ogy, chose K-State-Salina because it was close to home. She

liked the idea of a newly renovated campus and hoped that 
it would draw more traditional students. 

"Updating the buildings on campus will really help to 
attract students right out of high school," she said. "I also 

think that adding a new dorm would make it feel 

more like a big school's campus." 

These physical changes were also accompa- 
nied by several internal modifications. 

"Essentially, we are redoing the entire cam- 
pus," said Tom Rawson, vice president for ad- 
ministration and finance. "We plan to expand 
enrollment to 1,000 students as we transfer 
some of our four-year technical programs from 
the Manhattan campus to Salina." 

In addition to transferring programs, Rawson 
said the expansion of the Salina faculty was 

"As the student population increases, we 
will continue to add the necessary faculty members," Rawson 

Administration plans to see enrollment and faculty num- 
bers continue to climb throughout the next three years.

The 10 members of the Repertory Dance Company ranged from 
education to business majors, from 16 years of dancing experience to two 
years, but the one thing they had in common was a love of the dancing 

Tryouts were open to all students. The company had winter and spring 
performances, with the choreography arranged by teachers and students. 

The Spring Dance involved not only company members, but all of the 
dancers who auditioned. The company had three noon performances that 
consisted of excerpts from their concerts, and performed at more than 10 

"The demonstrations we do are an educational outreach," said Achmed 
Valk, assistant professor of speech and director of the dance company. "We 
show them what dance is and what it can be for them. It is also a cultural 

Most of the schools in the area were receptive to letting the company 
perform for the children. 

"Wamego schools are excellent to work with. At other schools, once we 
get there and start working with the kids, the staff is more receptive," said 
Suzanne Koucheravy, junior in theater and the company's assistant director. 
"In Manhattan, it's just a matter of getting in."

Not only did the elementary students learn from the 
demonstrations, but so did the dancers themselves. 

"It (performing at schools) provides experience in differ- 
ent settings. The dancers learn all other aspects (of perform- 
ing) that dancers need to know," Valk said. "Dancing is a 
legitimate career and profession. Things need to be taken 
care of, like promotions, costumes, scheduling and finances. 
Everybody has a specific task they are responsible for getting 

Stacey Taylor, junior in business administration and the 
company's general manager, danced in the company and 
also managed the business details. 

"I think the company is good for business majors to get 
involved in. Working here gives me good experience to put 
on a resume," Taylor said. "It also opens up opportunities to 
find jobs." 

The three males and seven females in the company met 
throughout the week for two hours to practice different 
dances and styles. They also had meetings on Wednesday 
nights in the Union Station, where they demonstrated 
dances for onlookers. 

"We wanted to get students involved," Taylor said. 
"Dancing at our meetings gave us a chance to show people 
who we are and what we do."

students visited campus and filled the air with music. 

KSU Symphony Orchestra sponsored String Fling Jan. 16-17 with the 
help of Golden Key National Society. The event was attended by 53 teachers 
and 975 fifth through ninth grade students. 

"The students got together with their similar grade levels to learn from 
each other as they practiced," said David Littrell, associate professor of music, 
orchestra conductor and String Fling coordinator. "It (String Fling) has 

educational value since most of the students — 

come from small schools and need to get 

The goal of the event was to give young 
string players an opportunity to develop 
their musical talents away from private les- 
sons and school orchestra practices. Initially, 
String Fling was established for junior high 
string students, but grew to include elemen- 
tary students. 

"String Fling provides good experience 
to young players with hope and expecta- ^ma^^^^^^^^^ 

tions. (It helps them) develop and continue with a life in music," said Willard 
Nelson, Golden Key and secondary education adviser. 

Littrell said students practiced all day Saturday and for 2-1/2 hours on 
Sunday before performing for their parents and the public at 12 noon and 
1:30 p.m. 

Although student involvement was limited, it was essential for the event 
to be a success. 

"We set up chairs, which wasn't a big deal, but there were over 900 chairs 
to set up for students," said Alice Hall, junior in psychology and orchestra 
member. "We also tuned their instruments and answered questions. It was 
quite an event. We've received a lot of positive feedback." 

Hall said she also guided lost children and parents, as well as distributed 
music sheets.

"The students were familar with their music, so the orchestra students 
help only if there is a problem," Hall said. "We don't have a lot of interaction 
with the students, but I believe every child should have this experience to see 
there are other children who play instruments." 

Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the event was Golden Key's 
first and oldest service project. 

"String Fling began in the early 1970s," Nelson said. "It started as a 
cooperative effort to help private local music teachers, as well as the K-State 
music department." 

Golden Key became involved with String Fling in 1982. 

"That year our vice president was a cellist. She believed it would be good 
to have a service project with the music department," Nelson said. "Al- 
though students only moved chairs and registered students, these tasks 
developed their involvement in the student organization. 

"We look at it as an honor to work with the music department. Golden 
Key is an honor society for all disciplines, so it is essential that we support the 
humanities and arts," he said. 

Although Golden Key and the music department co-sponsored the 
event, neither group funded the project. The money received from the 
children's tuition paid for the conductors and scholarships for K-State music 

"Without String Fling, we'd be in more need of financial support," 
Littrell said, "but String Fling provides support to our students." 

Littrell said he enjoyed participating in String Fling. 

"When I took the job in 1987, my predecessor had the responsibility of 
String Fling, so I just continued with the involvement," Littrell said. "I enjoy 
it because it is good public relations for the music department."

E Braving the 

By Lisa Staab 

Marching Band marched on. 

"Marching in bad weather is inconvenient, and there is no way to deny 
it," said Karla Hommertzheim, senior in secondary education, "but those 
who are dedicated to the marching band accept it and go on." 

Bob Kimbrough, senior in secondary education, said the benefits of 
marching in the band were worth suffering adverse weather conditions. 

"Unless it was raining ferociously, we were out marching, learning the 
drill," Kimbrough said. "Other activities find shelter from the weather. Both 
the football and baseball teams practice inside when the weather is bad — 
the band does not." 

Besides trudging through mud, band members also endured cold 

"The tuba section likes to show everyone how tough we are by wearing 
shorts to every rehearsal," Kimbrough said. "Two years ago, there was a foot 
of snow on the practice field and 1 guys wore shorts. It's our way to lighten 
the mood of our practice and it shows our spirit. Everyone notices our bare 
legs. We show people it is never too cold or too wet to march." 

Kimbrough said the tubaplayers were asource of inspiration for the band. 

"We yell and scream. Our job is to be goofy," Kimbrough said. "Some 
people think it is because we have a lack of oxygen to our brain from playing 
the big tubas. Maybe it is just the way we are. After all, what kind of person 
wants to carry a 20-pound instrument on his shoulder for two hours a day?" 

The band practiced Tuesday through Friday for two hours a day, and all 
day Saturday. In addition, staff had one-hour meetings three days a week. 

Besides playing at home games, the band also traveled to the University 
of Kansas and the University of Colorado. 

"It's exciting to perform in front of another band. While they can be 
critical, they can also appreciate, more than most, the things our group does 
well," Hommertzheim said. 

Hommertzheim said her involvement in the band allowed her to devote 
time and energy to an activity other than academics. 

With the athletic fee increase approval, the marching band will receive an 
annual budget of $70,000 during 1994-95. Although this was a $50,000 
increase, the budget was still the lowest among Big Eight universities. 

"I think students and admi nistrators should envision life without us. Life 
without a band at football games and pep rallies (would be) bleak," 
Hommertzheim said. "It is expensive to run a marching band, but we affect 
many K-State students both in and out of the group."

in clubs despite high costs. 

To pay for the various events the Rodeo Club sponsored throughout the 
year, club members had fundraisers and paid dues of $ 1 per semester or $ 1 5 
per year. Carrie Sharp, senior in animal sciences and industry and Rodeo 
Club president, said members who competed also bought National Inter- 
collegiate Rodeo Association cards and paid individual fees for each rodeo. 

"The club provided the facilities to practice for rodeos, and it provided 
the bucking and riding stock for them," Sharp said. "Members provided 
their own equipment." 

In the fall, the club sponsored a rodeo in conjunction with the Kansas 
Neurological Institute's festival and parade in Topeka. The club also 
sponsored a rodeo in Manhattan. 

"Fall activities include an alumni rodeo 

that matches students and alumni from Fort 
Scott Community College against students 
and alumni from K-State," Sharp said. 

Members of the Flint Hills Water Ski 
Club enjoyed competing with other club 
members, but Erica Milligan, junior in arts 
and sciences, said the club's costs added up. 
She said the club had a $35 annual fee. To s^^iiii5=i=i=^^s^; 

compete in intercollegiate competitions, 

members had to purchase a $35 American Water Ski Association card 
annually. Milligan also said members paid $3 per boat pull at practices to 
cover gas costs. 

"Members usually have their own equipment," Milligan said, "but the 
team has purchased its own skis and equipment. Team members also provide 
the boats." 

The ski equipment was expensive. A professional slalom ski cost as much 
as $200-350. Life jackets cost $45-75, while gloves cost $15-30. 

Although Mortar Board Senior Honorary Society members didn't 
participate in competitions, the club also had high membership fees. 
Carolyn Farris, senior in agricultural economics and the club's president, 
said Mortar Board members paid $4 1 national dues to cover administrative 
costs, a membership pin and regional meeting expenses. Members also had 
to buy their own suits. 

"Each year, members choose a different suit to wear to public and formal 
events that Mortar Board participates in, so the cost varies," Farris said. 

The Parachute Club was also an expensive organization to join. Gil 
Hopson, graduate student in journalism and mass communications, said the 
club had $10 semester dues and a $15 rental fee for the club's equipment. 
Members also paid $100 for eight hours of instruction and the first jump. 
He said the club's 75 members jumped at Wamego's airport on 
weekends if the weather was suitable. The jumping began at 1 0,000 feet for 
experienced jumpers and at 3,500 feet for student jumpers. Hopson said 
parachuters had a free fall of 45 seconds. They opened their parachutes at no 
lower than 2,500 feet and were under a canopy for approximately three 

"There are risks involved, but we are a safety-conscious lot," Hopson said. 
"Everything in life is a risk — the goal is to minimize the risk." 

Despite the high costs of jumping, Hopson said the thrill made up for the 

"We do it (jump) for excitement, fulfillment and self-actualization," 
Hopson said. "It exceeded all my expectations. It's an exhilaration — a 
reaffirmation of life."

O said Tracy Bollig, senior in marketing and secretary/ treasurer of the 
Kaw Valley Diving Club. 

To give local divers the chance to experience the thrill of diving, Brent 
Vopat, junior in electrical engineering, founded the diving club in 1991. 

"It (the club) is a way to meet and get acquainted with other divers," said 

Vopat, the club's vice president. "It's a way to expose people (to diving)." 

Divers often dived with partners , and Vopat said it was best to dive with friends. 

"The best way to get to know people who dive and go on trips is through 

the club," said Keith Slyter, junior in mechanical engineering. 

Darren Stross, senior in architecture and club member, also gave a 
demonstration to students who were inter- 
ested in diving. An informational meeting 
was held at Putnam Hall which was followed 
by diving demonstrations at the Natatorium. 
"Aside from being a good source of diving 
information, the club is primarily recreational," 
Bollig said. "We do it (dive) for fun." 

The club had 25 members who traveled 

todifferentdivingareas including Lawrence, 
Missouri and Arkansas. The club members also traveled to the Sea of Cortez, 
near Mexico, in late March. 

"Most of the members had never dived in saltwater, so the trip was 
beneficial to them," Vopat said. 

Before scuba diving, a variety of steps had to be taken to ensure the divers' 
safety. Potential divers needed certification before they could rent or 
purchase equipment and have their tanks filled with oxygen. 

Manhattan had two programs that offered certification. The University for Man 
offered a course through the YMCA, and the Aggie Dive Shop offered courses 
through the Professional Association of Underwater Diving Instructors. 
"Diving is adventurous," Bollig said. "It has some danger to it." 
Vopat agreed divers needed to be aware of possible hazards. 
"The main thing divers need to be aware of is fishing lines," Vopat said. 
"Other hazards are bad visibility, hypothermia and being struck by a boat 
when coming up from the water."

.cheers on the football field, it was their performance in an outside 
courtyard that literally stopped traffic. 

In December, the squad accompanied the football team to Tokyo, 
Japan, for the Coca-Cola Tokyo Bowl. During a sightseeing trip, some 
cheerleaders wanted to take pictures of a marketplace. Because the streets 
were packed with people, the yell leaders lifted their partners above the crowd 
so they could see, unaware of the enthusiastic response the Japanese 
onlookers would have for the simple stunt. 

To further please the crowd, squad members performed parts of their 
routine. After the first few stunts were completed, squad members realized 
they had attracted a crowd of thousands. 

Greg Winn, senior in management, said the Japanese people enjoyed the 
squad's routines. 

"It was as close to being a celebrity as I will ever get," Winn said. "There 
were people cheering, applauding and taking pictures." 

He said a Japanese police officer eventually told the squad to stop 
performing because the crowd that had gathered to watch extended into a 
nearby intersection, halting traffic. 

Theresa Russell, sophomore in secondary education, said the Japanese 
citizens were excited to see the cheerleading squad show off their skills. 

"The Japanese were not familiar with American football," Russell said, 
"but they were eager to participate in the game." 

Since they were unfamilar with football rules, Gretchen Schmoekel, 
freshmen in elementary education, said the Japanese fans depended on the 
squad for guidance in cheering. 

"They liked to watch us do pyramids and basket tosses," Schmoekel said. 
"The wave was also exciting for them." 

The squad members didn't change their routines for the Japanese 

"We tried to keep everything as American as possible," Russell said. "The 
fans followed enthusiastically."

John Swartz, freshman in mechanical engineering and former Icthus

"We don't try to force our views on anyone," Swartz said. "It (Icthus) is 
a place for people to come and investigate Christianity and learn about

The group investigated Christ's teachings and formed new friendships in 
the process.

Continued from page 167 

Because the group was led by different students each week, Hart said the 
meetings and activities varied. 

"Some of the meetings are structured; others are more laid back," Hart 
said. "The main focus is the speakers. They talk about Christianity in ways 
relative to the typical college student. They communicate about the hope of 
Christ and the basics of what Christ really means." 

Some Icthus members attended a conference in Kansas City, Mo., where 
a group from PROBE Ministries provided seminars and training. Swartz 
said the speakers were motivating. 

"There are several speakers who speak to the level of a college student. 
There are different seminars you can attend, " Swartz said. "The seminars are 
not stiff, and the keynote speaker is usually under 30 years old, so he or she 
speaks to a college student's generation and level." 

Besides the weekly meetings and annual conference, Icthus members 
also participated in various student activities. An annual barbecue took place 
at the beginning of the fall semester, with approximately 400 people 
attending the event. The group members also sponsored a car wash, went 
Christmas caroling at a local nursing home and had a bonfire with an Icthus 
group from the University of Kansas. 

Kail Katzenmeier, sophomore in human development and family 
studies, said Icthus was an outreach for students who weren't Christian 

"The Thursday night meetings are geared for the typical college student 
who may or may not have ever been to church," Katzenmeier said. "Icthus' 
goal is to provide a non-threatening understanding of our need for God in 
our everyday lives." 

Katzenmeier recognized the difference between Icthus and other Chris- 
tian organizations that focused on students who went to church frequendy. 
Icthus was also geared for those who weren't strict Christians. 

"Icthus is a place where anyone is welcome," said Becky Porter, freshman 
in speech. "It is for Christians, but it is also for non-Christians."

the K-State Union as band after band took the stage vying for the top 
spot at the Opus band competition. Although it was originally planned as 
a one-time spring event, Opus turned into an annual fall tradition. 

The sixth-annual Opus band competition, sponsored by Union Pro- 
gram Council's Eclectic Entertainment committee, took place Aug. 3 1 from 
5 to 1 1 p.m. The event had 26 entries, making it larger than previous years. 
However, due to time limitations, only seven bands were selected to 

The chosen bands performed in random order. Playing early in the show 
was considered a disadvantage because crowds arrived late. Despite being the 
first band to play, Truck Stop Love, a Manhattan band, placed second. 

"The only problem is that part of the judging is based on crowd response. 
The bands that play early don' t have much of a crowd, " said Rich Yarges, Truck 
Stop Love's guitarist. "This year ran the best, and we played really well." 

Although the band competition was successful, Charla Bailey, program 
adviser for Eclectic Entertainment, said it could be improved. 

"Next year, I'd like to have it on Saturday and make it an all day thing," 
Bailey said. "This year's entries were all good enough to play. I'd like to make 
that possible, but it will be up to next year's committee." 

Planning for OPUS 6 began early in June as co-sponsors KMKF-FM 
101.5 and Impulse Sound were secured. The Union Plaza was reserved in 
the first week of June. Letters were sent to local businesses, music stores and 
radio stations to promote and encourage a diverse group of bands to apply. 

To enter, the bands paid a $35 entry fee and submitted a demonstradon 
tape with two songs, one of which had to be an original. The non-refundable 
entry fee was used for prize money and other promotional expenses. Although 
$900 was collected from entry fees, the total event cost UPC nearly $2,000. 

The judges were chosen based upon their involvement in music and their 
ability to determine originality among the bands. At least one K-State 
student was included every year to maintain student involvement. The 10 
judges listened to audition tapes and selected bands for the live performance. 

"The ballots are weighed heavily on originality," said Brian Harris, a 
judge and a member of the Moving Van Goghs. "Categories concentrate on 
instrumental and vocal ability more than stage presence and audience

The K-State Choir strayed from the norm during the holidays. 
Instead of mailing out traditional Christmas cards, choir members 
took a more personal approach and became singing Christmas cards. 

"We used to do singing Valentines," said Rod Walker, professor of music 
and choir director, "but so many other groups were doing the same project 
we decided to change." 

The Christmas card singers, divided into groups of four and eight, were 
on call during the Christmas season. Money raised from the performances 
funded the choir's fall and spring tours. 

Haley Minton, senior in speech pathology and audiology, said the group 
performed at homes and businesses. "We also had a request to perform at a 
wedding reception once," she said. "We didn't perform for it though because 
the wedding took place during finals week, so a lot of our group couldn't 


They also performed for a group of 
teachers at a breakfast sponsored by a school 
principal and President Jon Wefald's Christ- 
mas party. Wherever they went, Minton 
said the group was well received, with el- 
ementary school students among their big- 
gest fans. 

"Some of the kids would stop and sing," 

said Anne Walker, freshman in journalism ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 

and mass communications. "The kindergar- 
ten class did hand actions and joined in as we sang 'Up On the Housetop.'" 

Students in the choir said the singing Christmas cards put them in the 
holiday spirit. 

"I like doing the parties because sometimes they (the partiers) will invite 
you to stay and enjoy the party with them," said Jennifer Donovan, junior 
in music education. 

Walker said choir members enjoyed delivering the singing cards. 

"Sometimes it (performing) means more to the kids than to the people 
they are singing to," Walker said. "It means a lot to them to be able to provide 
music. They are good about sharing their talent." 

Dennis Jensen, sophomore in pre-medicine, said the Meadowlark 
Retirement Community was one of the favorite places his quartet visited. 

"The people were receptive," he said. "They were glad to hear us sing." 

The choir has taken their show out of the country. Their most recent trip 
took them to Amsterdam and Maastricht, Netherlands and to Colonge, 
Germany last year. 

"We take a vote on whether or not the choir wants to go," said Walker. 
"If there is enough interest to merit taking the trip, we go." 

The choir also visited high schools in Kansas and performed for teenagers 
in Garden City, Dodge City and Great Bend. 

"These concerts are not only beneficial to the choir," Minton said, "but 
it's great publicity for K-State. You don't even have to say anything. They 
just hear the choir and are impressed." 

Three concerts were performed each semester on campus. 

"Kansas State is very fortunate to have a choir of this quality," Walker 
said. "The credit goes directly to thestudents. The willingness and workethic 
of students has to be at a high level. The kids are a delight to work with. I'm 
really sold on them."

Taylor Mali 

By Ted Kadau Jr. 

Some men never questioned their manhood, but a growing number 
believed they should. Just Guys, a club founded in October 1991, was 
established to provide a forum for men to talk openly about men's issues. 
Taylor Mali, graduate student in English and founder of Just Guys, said a 
need for the club existed. 

"I was 25 years old and I couldn't say I was a man," Mali said. "I had an 
aversion to the tide of man. I had no role models, and I didn't feel I deserved 
the tide. There was no rite of passage." 

Issues the group members discussed ranged from the general competition 
that existed between men to the difficulty many men had in expressing their 
feelings. Mali said the group's purpose was not to focus on male and female 
relationships, but the discussions often centered on this topic. 

He said people who stereotyped the group's members as male chauvinists 
or homosexuals were wrong. 

"The men who come to the meetings are 
concerned about other men and the neces- 
sity of relinquishing some economic and 
sexual power," Mali said. "However, in giv- 
ing up some of this power, they do not want 
to give up their personal, intrinsically mascu- 
line power. Some may say this is the power 

we need to relinquish the most. I disagree. If 

we had fully understood, honored and celebrated that power, we would have 

distributed it equally between the sexes." 

However, the club members dealt with the problems of equality firsthand 
when they decided after the third meeting to exclude women. Jan Lewis, 
freshman in human development and family studies, had participated in the 
meetings before women were banned. 

"When I first attended a meeting, I was concerned that women were not 
welcome. I didn't expect outright hostility, but I worried about an underly- 
ing attitude of rejection," Lewis said. "After the first meeting, I sensed a lot 
of openness and honesty. The members were comfortable with addressing 
issues and exploring relationships." 

The men in the club decided to exclude women because some men said 
they were not honest when women were present. Lewis said she didn't resent 
the decision. 

"I will miss the group, but I feel good about the decision. It makes a lot 
of sense to me," she said. "The women who were there for the first three 
meetings shared the vision of personal growth and were willing to accept this 
(club) for the personal growth of the men."

"It (racquetball) can be played any time of the year," said Kurt Pyle, senior 
in secondary education. "It is competitive and a great aerobic workout. Plus, 
you only need two people to play." 

Pyle was one of 1 active members in the Racquetball Club. Originally 
formed in 1983, club membership dwindled over the years until its revival 
in 1991. The club members met Tuesday and Thursday nights at the 
Chester E. Peters Recreation Complex to play against each other. 

Frank Westhoff, fifth-year undergraduate in architectural engineering 
and club president, helped revive the club. He said participating in the 
Racquetball Club had benefits. 

"Going to the Rec, you never know who you will play," Westhoff said. 
"With the club, you can play people at your own skill level." 

Club members participated in 10 tournaments during the 1993 spring 
season. Three of the tournaments were sponsored by universities, including 
Wichita State University, the University of Kansas and Southwest Missouri 
State University. The remaining seven were sponsored by sports clubs. 

At the college tournaments, each of the schools entered six players who 
were ranked from one to six. The numbered team members played the 
corresponding members from the opposing teams. 

Sports club tournaments were similar to the college tournaments, except 
they were open to anyone who wanted to play. The sports club tournaments 
had six divisions ranging from open to novice. 

Although the club was an official University organization, they did not 
receive financial support. Westhoff said club members strung racquets for 
the Rec Complex, earning $3 per racquet, to offset tournament entry fees. 
The cost of the tournaments ranged from $25-35 per person. 

Club members agreed racquetball was a good form of exercise and said 
the tournaments provided them a sense of satisfaction. 

"You get a great thrill when you win a tournament. You know it is

something you did all on your own," said Mark Stenberg, graduate student 
in mechanical engineering. 

A veteran racquetball player, Jan Wilson, graduate student in curriculum 
and instruction, said she liked playing in a club because of the camaraderie 
between the members. She said the club allowed her to meet new people and 
get a good workout. 

"Competing in tournaments is fun and exciting," Wilson said. "I spend 
the weekend getting worn out and then I am 
ready to face my week." 

Club members spent an average of five 
hours a week playing racquetball. Some 
members also stayed in shape by running 
and training with weights. 

"The team as a whole is playing a lot 
better than last year," Stenberg said. "I think 
we all have moved up a skill level." 

Although the club's membership had 
increased from the previous year, the group 
wanted to attract even more participants. 

"Unfortunately, a lot of people who are 

"Competing in tourna-

interested in the club don't think we are interested in anyone except really 
good players," Pyle said. "That is too bad because if we get more people, then 
everyone improves." 

Wilson used to be the only woman in the club, but she said more women 
had joined. 

"One of the most exciting things about this year is that more people are 
getting involved, especially women," she said.

young adults earning their Graduation Equivalency Diplomas, Beta 
Alpha Psi accounting honorary members shared their skills with others. 

Beta Alpha Psi was an honorary fraternity for students with an overall 
grade point average above 3.0. Members also needed to earn a 3.0 in an 
upper-level accounting class. 

Eric Rook, senior in accounting and the club's vice president, said the 
organization had more than 1 00 members divided into 20 committees. The 
members served as volunteer tutors. 

"We offer tutoring to accounting majors 
on Tuesday nights in Calvin Hall, as well as 
work with the Flint Hills Job Corps Center 
helping 16 to 22 year olds obtain their 
GEDs," Rook said. "We also help students 
study for their ACTs." 

Rook said tutoring was a positive expe- 
rience for club members. 

"I enjoyed the chance of helping people 
who haven't had the same opportunities to learn things," he said. 

Besides tutoring students, club members also assisted people with their 
taxes through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance committee. The 80 
volunteers were composed of 75 students, with 60 majoring in accounting. 

Scott Walker, senior in accounting and VITA chairperson, said the 
committee helped more than 3,000 people during the past two years. 

To assist small businesses with accounting needs, club members orga- 
nized the Small Business Development Center. This gave students the 
opportunity to volunteer their time in an actual business application. 

"I think the community involvement helps the students of Beta Alpha 
Psi, as well as the people needing help," said Johanna Lyle, Beta Alpha Psi 
adviser and accounting instructor. 

"i enjoyed the chance of 

helping people who haven t 

had the same opportunities

Student Foundation was dying. 
Student membership and involvement in the organization were slowly 
sliding away. Members said the group's only hope for survival was recon- 

Student Foundation, a public relations and fund-raising organization, 
served the University through various projects and activities. Members 
wanted to generate a stronger sense of University pride and loyalty among 
students, but keeping spirit alive was a job that required involvement. 

"We needed a change because membership was dropping. We needed to 
attract more people," said Kara Belew, senior in secondary education and 
Student Foundation president. 

A change was made in the organization's structure. No longer was it solely 
a volunteer group; students who led Student Foundation had to prove they 
could be a leader before getting the job. 

"We still have our volunteer group, but 
then we have a group appointed by the 
administration, like the deans and athletic 
director," Belew said. "Then we have an 
executive group to guide (the organization) ." 

The group's new constitution had a three- 
tiered ladder of leadership consisting of a 
group of advisers appointed by rCSU Foun- 
dation, and a group of ambassadors ap- - 

pointed by the different colleges' deans. The 

executive council, which was the decision-making body of the group, made 

up the third tier. 

Not only did the organization have a new stucture, but all of the activities 
it sponsored were also new. The organization's members took a different 
approach to activities to get more students involved. 

One of the new activities the reorganized Student Foundation sponsored 
was allowing alumni who made donations to the University shadow a 
student for a day. This gave the alumni an opportunity to experience college 
life in the '90s. 

"They (alumni) can get more of a perspective that students today are still 
like they were when they were here," Belew said. 

Another new project the group became involved with was the baseball 
series against the University of Kansas. The series was promoted through 
tailgate parties and a scholarship giveaway. 

"We did it (the project) to promote baseball. Even though the games are 
free, they don't get a lot of support," said Dari Ashworth, senior in 
elementary education. "It's our job to find things at the University that need 

Another change in Student Foundation was the involvement of students 
from a variety of groups. 

"Involvement used to rotate between greek houses," Belew said. "One 
year it would be one house involved, the next year it would be another. Now 

"we needed a change 
because membership was 
dropping. we needed to 

attract more people."

there are more 'global' types. It's much more effective."

From organizing the homecoming parade to helping with Jell-O-Rama, 
members of Mortar Board Senior Honorary Society were involved with 
campus activities. 

Carolyn Farris, senior in agricultural economics and Mortar Board 
president, said the organization was open to juniors with a minimum 3.3 
grade point average who demonstrated leadership qualities and were willing 
to perform volunteer work. 

Mortar Board members assisted with several projects on and offcampus. 
Several members ushered at the Landon Lectures Series and for ticket holders 
of the President's Box at football games. The club also presented two 
students with scholarships funded by alumni donations and Mortar Board 

Despite members' involvement in these various activities, the group's 
main responsibility was organizing the homecoming parade. Jim Persinger, 
senior in marketing, directed the parade. He said his involvement with 
Mortar Board was rewarding. 

"I find it refreshing to be in a group that provides service for so many 
people," Persinger said. "I have the opportunity to organize several activities, 
including the homecoming parade." 

Persinger said the Mortar Board members needed to be dedicated 
because many of the club's activities were time consuming. 

"Most of the members are so active that it is hard to find time to do the 
activities we have planned," Persinger said. "Most things are pulled offfrom 
the commitment of the members."

Besides helping with the University activities, Mortar Board members 
reached out to people beyond campus. 

At Christmas time, Mortar Board members collected items for chil- 
dren . They also sponso red a Christmas party with children in Manhattan's 
Big Brothers/Big Sisters program. Farris said these projects were enjoyed 
by the entire group. 

"It (helping children) makes you feel like you're doing something good 
and worthwhile," Farris said. 

In the spring, the club sponsored a Mortar Board Week on campus. They had 
speakers and activities to promote leadership within the student body. Farris said 
the club's activities provided members the opportunity to develop friendships. 

"It's fun to be in a group with so many motivated people," she said "Whether 
it's attending meetings or helping with projects, everyone has a special role."

ington, D.C., to hear Martin Luther King Jr. speak in 1963. Thirty 
years later, 1 30 K-State students walked through campus during the Martin 
Luther King Jr. Observance Week, Jan. 18-22, in recognition of the slain 
civil rights movement leader. 

The walk, sponsored by Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, began at Waters 
Hall. The students marched through campus to All Faiths Chapel, where 
they participated in a candlelight vigil and a religious service. 

Jayson Strickland, senior in elementary education and Alpha Phi Alpha 
president, said the walk was a symbolic tradition that the fraternity has 
sponsored since 1986. 

"The walk from Waters Hall to All Faiths 
Chapel symbolizes the marches and demon- 
strations they (protesters) did to overcome 
racist institutions of the times," Strickland 
said. "King was an Alpha, and it (the walk) 
was like honoring a brother." 

Veryl Switzer, associate director of 
intercollegiate athletics and co-chairman of 
Observance Week, said the event served as a 
reminder that King's dream has not been 

"We celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. — the passing of a star — to reflect 
on the many contributions Dr. King made for mankind," Switzer said. "We 
want to make sure his message continues." 

Strickland said the service was a learning experience for students, 
community members and children. 

"A lot of times students haven't had any kind of experience with black 
history, and they don't know the affect Martin Luther King Jr. has had on 
society," Strickland said. "The Observance Week gives people a chance to 
celebrate the dream and rededicate themselves to the dream."

.Democrats and College Republicans had similar goals for the national 
and local elections. Both organizations tried to involve students in the 
political process by promoting candidates and informing students about 
voter registration. 

"Right after school began, we started having information tables set up in 
the Union," said Ray Kowalczewski, senior in economics and president of 
Young Democrats. "We had a table there 35 or 40 days out of the semester." 

At the information table, club members answered questions, passed out 
campaign literature for national and local candidates and sold material that 
promoted the Bill Clinton-Al Gore ticket. Club members sold approxi- 
mately 5 T-shirts, 200 buttons, 30 yard signs and 1 00 bumper stickers. The 
money was used to pay for campaign paraphernalia and to cover printing 
costs of literature that club members distributed. 

However, the Young Democrats weren't the only political organization 
to have information tables in the Union. Republican and Libertarian groups 
each had a campaign table beside the Young Democrats. 

"We had a few little jabs with the students at the other tables," said Mark 
Sheldon, senior in secondary education and Young Democrats member. 
"There were lots of people who stopped by the table and were genuinely 

Besides passing out information about the candidates, Kowalczewski said 
he tried to get students interested in voting. 

"Regardless of how the students voted, we (Young Democrats) wanted 
them to go out and cast their ballots," he said. "Eighteen-to 24-year-olds 
usually don't vote, so politicians don't have to pay attention to young 

Even though the group was unable to get a club member deputized to 
register students, Kowalczewski said they passed out more than 100 voter 
registration information cards. 

The College Republicans also wanted students to exercise their right to 
vote. The group worked more than 100 hours in the Union handing out 
candidate information, sending students to the Student Governing Associa- 
tion office for voter registration, and discussing current issues with students. 

"I met 10 to 15 people a day while working at the table," said Gregory 
Hill, junior in political science. "It really kept me up on the issues." 

The Republicans kept students informed on the Republican platform by 
referring to a 100-page document distributed to all party organizations.

"All of Bush's positions were listed in this catalog," said Neil Neaderhiser, 
senior in engineering technology and College Republicans president. "It was 
helpful when people had questions at the table." 

The College Republicans made their presence on campus known during 
the elections. Club members passed out more than 4,000 fliers, 150 yard 
signs, 400 buttons and 400 bumper stickers. They also made an effort to call 
all students registered with the Republican party on the night before the 

"I think calling the registered Republicans made a big difference on the

remind them."

By Todd Johnson and Heather Riley 

Each fall, students had the opportunity to become ambassadors for the 
University. Sponsored by the KSU Alumni Association, the ambassadors were 
chosen to represent and promote K-State. 

The selection process had several stages. After completing an application, 19 
people were interviewed by a group of students chosen by the Homecoming 
committee. Fourteen students were granted a second interview with a faculty 
committee. The committees chose four men and four women finalists, who were 
voted upon by the student body. During halftime at the Nov. 21 Homecoming 
football game, Todd Johnson, junior in agribusiness, and Heather Riley, senior 
inEnglish, were announced the winners. Below is an account of their experiences. 

Monday, Oct. 5 

Johnson: Applications for ambassadors were made available. I picked 
mine up the first day — the first step in a long and competitive process. I 
decided this was a once-in-a-lifetime chance I couldn't pass up. 

Riley: I picked up an application for ambassador, and I'm really excited. 
One of my biggest goals was to get involved in sharing my enthusiasm about 
K-State with others. Being an ambassador would attack that goal head-on. 

Friday, Oct. 23 

Johnson: Applications were due. After turning mine in and signing up 
for the initial interview, I realized how many qualified applicants there were. 
It would not be an easy process. I set my goal to make the ballot. 

Riley: I turned in my application today. It was more difficult than I 
expected. It wasn't that I struggled to find anything to say, but condensing 
my ideas was a challenge. I bought a purple cap and stayed up all night with 
a friend, scribbling, laughing and counting words. My enthusiasm about 
being an ambassador ran rampant. I couldn't wait for the interviews.

Monday, Nov. 2 

Johnson: First interview. I had lost my voice over the weekend while 
cheering for my high school at a state volleyball tournament. I didn't sound 
like myself during the interview, but I felt good about how it went. Camille 
Rohleder (senior in elementary education and Homecoming committee 
member) called with the news that I had made the second interview. I was 
ecstatic. Now I had to prepare for the next step. 

Riley: I was incredibly nervous before the first interview, but once I got 
there, I loved it. I enjoyed talking about my favorite memories of K-State and 
sharing with others (the reasons) why choosing to study here has been the best 
decision of my life. 

Wednesday, Nov. 4 

Johnson: Second interview. My heart was pounding and my hands were 
sweating as I entered the room, plus my voice was still raspy. I was required 
to give a two-to three-minute presentation on my knowledge of K-State and 
the Homecoming theme. 

Later that evening, I received a phone call during dinner. My heart 
dropped. It was Camille (Rohleder). She tried to beat around the bush by 
asking what I was doing. I finally asked her if I had made it, and she said I 
was on the ballot. I was so happy, my legs started to shake. I thought I was 
going to fall over. I had achieved my goal. 

Riley: The faculty interview was hard. Most of the people on the panel 
were teachers I respect, and that added to the anxiety. It was a challenge to 
explain how much I would love to commit myself to this position. 

Days Nov. 18-20 

Johnson: Student voting started and our articles were printed in the 
Collegian. Those three days were great. All of my friends were supportive. It 
was a wonderful feeling — like being a celebrity. 

Saturday, Nov. 21 

Johnson: At the parade, all the candidates and last year's ambassadors 
were driven in convertibles. The parade was so much fun I decided it didn't 
matter if I won or not; the experience had been enough. 

I have never experienced a longer first half of a football game in my life. 
I tried to keep the thought of going out on the field from my mind. Lining 
up for the presentation was an awesome feeling — the stands were full, the 
Cats were winning, the weather was cold, my heart was pounding and oh my 
God, "the new KSU ambassador is Todd Johnson." I didn't even hear 
Heather's name announced, I was in such shock. I would never forget "The 
Cats and U in '92." 

Riley: The parade was incredibly cold, but it was wonderful to see people 
from the Manhattan community. My parents were at the parade, too. They 
had their video camera at every corner. Mom even filmed halftime, while 
Dad followed me down to the field to take pictures. 

Standing on the field, I wasn't sure if my trembling was from nerves or 
the cold weather. I was sure no matter who won, I would always remember 
the ambassador process as the highlight of my senior year.

makes its way down Moro 
Street in Aggieville, K-State 
ambassador candidates Chris 
Hupe, senior in finance, and

friends along the sidewalks.

night Madness or sitting in the best seats at football or basketball 
games, ICAT (I Contributed A Twenty) members had the opportunity 
to meet new people while being involved in athletic events. 

"The students have a lot of fun at football games," said Angie Johnson, 
ICAT adviser. "They make their presence known." 

Club members helped the athletic department with various activities, 
including handing out pompons at the Iowa State football game. 

"When we need some manpower, they're there to help," Johnson said. 
"The money they raise goes to the Mike Ahearn Scholarship Fund, which 
is a general fund for all student athletes." 

Membership in the club grew from 230 students in 1 99 1 to 532 students 
in 1992. Members planned a spring fundraiser for the baseball team, 
organized the basketball ticket campout and helped with Midnight Mad- 
ness, a basketball scrimmage which took place Oct. 3 1 . 

Jeff Chapman, Midnight Madness coordinator and former ICAT presi- 
dent said donations and promotions by Larry "Bud" Melman contributed 
to the event's success. 

"My roommate and I were watching TV after Midnight Madness last 
year. We talked about how pitiful it was. Then we saw David Letterman on 
TV and Larry "Bud" Melman was on. I said, 'We need to get that guy.'" 
Chapman said different activities including costume contests, perfor- 
mances by former Wildcat basketball players and a three point shooting 
contest in which Jon Wefald, president, beat Milt Richards, athletic director, 
were planned every 10 minutes to keep the crowd's interest. 

Chapman said the final highlight of the event was when Brian Henson, 
sophomore in arts and sciences, proposed to his girlfriend, Theresa Russell, 
sophomore in secondary education. She accepted his offer. 

"The production was one of the best," Johnson said.

Bakery Science and Management Club members rolled up their 
sleeves and made some dough. 

Gaining hands-on experience in baking, students in the club made a 
variety of baked goods to sell at weekly bake sales in Shellenberger Hall. 

Joe Ponte, professor of grain science and industry and club adviser, said 
the bake sales allowed club members to gain valuable experience. 

"Club members learn the importance of working together, mixing the 
various ingredients and using certain formulas for baking," Ponte said. 
"They also do marketing on what to sell and how much to charge." 

Although they did not get paid, students earned credit hours depending 
on the number of hours they worked. Club members had meetings every 
Tuesday evening and prepared food for the next day's bake sale. 

Thu Dao, senior in bakery science and management and club president, 

said bake sales took place from 3 to 5 p.m. or 

until all items were sold. 

"The club usually makes about $300- 
500 at a bake sale," Dao said. "The money 
raised goes toward professional conventions." 

Dao said the first convention the club 
attended was the American Society of Bak- 
ery Engineers in Chicago. 

"Members who work 50 hours get their 
trips paid for to Chicago," Dao said. "About 
1 5 people a year get to go." 

Ponte said the baking convention pro- 
vided an opportunity for students to meet representatives from major baking 
companies. They also received up-to-date literature and information in the 

The top five members who worked the most hours were also selected to 
attend the Retail Baker's Association in Adanta. 

Besides attending conventions, club members also varied their activities 
by having special bake sales during holidays and University events. Stephanie 
Donker, senior in bakery science and management and the club's vice 
president, said the Open House bake sale in April kept club members busy. 

"We give away free samples," Donker said. "It (the Open House bake 
sale) is a lot of work. It gets hectic baking for thousands of people." 

Dao said she learned more from the club than from her classes. 

"Club members get to do things like working on the cookie depositor, 
deciding on packaging needs and keeping everything clean to meet new 
sanitation laws," Dao said. 

"The club usually makes 

$300-500 at a bake sale. 

the money raised goes 

toward professional 

conventions. "

In November, a group of students contributed 30 pounds of food to 
the Manhattan area's needy. The next month they warmed elderly 
people's hearts when they sang Christmas carols at two local nursing homes. 
In February, these same students volunteered their services to the Flint Hills 
Breadbasket. Besides being community-minded individuals, the students 
shared another common bond — they were all education majors involved 
in Teachers of Tomorrow. 

The club, open to students in the College of Education, was virtually 
inactive until Rosemarie Deering, assistant professor of secondary educa- 
tion, came to K-State six years ago. Deering was asked to advise the group 
of 20 in January 1988. Since then, the club's membership has grown to 
include more than 200 students. 

"We worked hard at the education symposium, Open House and 
Activities Carnival to get people to recognize our club," said Jennifer Sothers, 
senior in elementary education and TOT president, "but I was really 
surprised to see so many people at the first meeting." 

The club's officers quickly involved new members in projects. The future 
teachers went caroling at Stoneybrook Health Care Center and St. Joseph 
Senior Community before winter break. Deering encouraged the students 
to reach out to the residents. 

"I told them how important it was to touch (them), to pat their hands, 
to make eye contact and to try to reach out to each person," Deering said. 
"I was so proud. When we came out, there were lumps in all of our throats." 

The club members' spirit of giving continued into February as they volunteered 
their time to the Flint Hills Breadbasket. Six club members helped transfer 
crates of food from a warehouse to the Breadbasket's headquarters. 

From working with the charity, club members learned about the area needy. 

"They feed over 180 families a week," Sothers said. "They're even 
building a kitchen in their headquarters to teach some of the recipients how 
to cook the food they receive." 

Deering said one of the club's goals was to bring secondary and 
elementary majors together. She also wanted the future teachers to be 
sensitive to community needs. 

"We wanted to think bigger than any particular focus. We need to make 
connections with people, especially with the needy and the hungry," 
Deering said. "We (teachers) must touch hearts as well as minds."

Loose pebbles trickled over the climber's face as he worked the hex into 
'the rock's crack. Once it was securely wedged in the rock, he continued 
to move up the face of the mountain and safely anchored himself with 
webbing. Signaling to the climber below, he began to take up the slack in the 
rope connecting the two climbers. His partner followed his lead up the rock 
face, where they made their way in leapfrog fashion over the craggy surface, 
buffeted by wind. 

Scaling imposing mountain terrain was a common activity for experi- 
enced members of the Rock Climbing Club. Turning their initial reserva- 
tions of climbing into strengths, club members said they enjoyed the 
challenging aspects of the sport. 

"The thing I enjoy about climbing is its mental and physical challenges," 
said Ryan Fast, senior in park resources management. "It's very mental — 
you have to overcome your fears in a big way. I was scared of heights; I still 
am. It's usually the people who aren't afraid of heights who make mistakes. 
They get rambunctious. The fear factor plays an important role in climbing." 

Fast said common places to climb included sites in Colorado, Missouri 
and Oklahoma. He said club members traveled to different locations to 

"We could be gone in a half hour," Fast said. "We try to coordinate food, 
throw all of our equipment in the car and organize it when we get there." 

Rick Hunt, senior in management, said a typical trip didn't require a lot 
of planning time. 

"We decide where we're going and when we're going a week or two before 
the trip," Hunt said. "We split into cars and find a campsite. We'll either 
climb that day or wait until the next morning. We try to climb as much as 
we can since we've driven all that way. Usually we go during the times of year 
when there's a lot of daylight. By the end of the day, we're tired, so we just 
sit around the campfire at night." 

Each member of the club had the opportunity to perfect his or her skills 
on the Memorial Stadium's wall. To ensure the climbers' safety, training 
sessions and seminars were offered to novice members. 

"Right at the first, they showed us safety techniques," said Tia Swanson, 
freshman in food and nutrition-exercise science. "They taught us to tie knots 
and the dialogue we should use with people on the ground and on the wall. 
We also had to pass a test before we could climb." 

A new safety officer position was added to the club for the members' 
safety. Fast said emphasis on protection was important. 

"Your life is in their (the person you're climbing with) hands and theirs 
is in yours. If people get careless, it could turn into disaster. That's why the 
club stresses safety."

Rock Climbing- hi 205 


Continued from page 205 

The amount of time spent climbing var- 
ied with each member. Hunt said club offic- 
ers wanted to turn idle novice members into 
experienced participants. 

"New people are usually reluctant to call 
someone and ask them to climb with them," 
Hunt said. "There are a lot (of new mem- 
bers) who are too shy. We want them to get 
more involved, so we hold training sessions 
and publicize specific times to climb. People 
think the club's imposing, but it's not." 

Emily Brink, freshman in kinesiology, 
said she had several misconceptions about 
the club before she joined. 

"I thought most members would be big, 
strong, muscular guys," Brinksaid. "It wasn't 
like that. There were a lot of different people 
there. I was also surprised that there were 
quite a few girls. I was scared the first time I 
went to a meeting, but after I met them (club 
members), I felt like I fit in."

promote rape prevention. Known as peer educators, the students gave 
presentations to raise awareness of the issue. 

"Our group tries to teach students to be responsible without sounding 
like we are preaching," said Rebecca Carney, graduate student in student 
counseling/personal services and assistant director of the Women's Resource Center. 

Carney said peer educators attended seminars and workshops to learn 
about rape and methods for preventing it from occurring. The peer educators 
learned ways to refer victims to proper counseling and gave several presentations 
to various living groups. 

"We spoke to the Sigma Kappa sorority and also to the staff members of 
the residence halls," said Elizabeth Haynes, junior in social sciences and 
women's studies. "Giving a presentation to the RAs helped us a lot because 
they were already trained in the area of rape. They were able to provide us 
with good feedback on how to improve our presentatioa" 

The peer educators tried to capture the students' attention through their 

"We introduce ourselves, show a video and then break into groups to 
discuss issues. We try to emphasize not getting too drunk, watching out for 
friends and clear communication," Carney said. 

The presentations also stressed the danger of alcohol. 

"Alcohol is involved in 84 percent of all rape cases reported," she said. 
"Wewantpeople to know where they are and who they are with when 
they are drinking." 

Peer educators wanted to spread their message to both genders. 

"Our message is really directed toward both men and women," Haynes 
said. "We want women to protect one another and look out for each other, 
but we also want men to be educated on rape as well." 

The program included several male peer educators, which showed men 
were also concerned with the issue. 

"I think it is important to have men involved because it shows we 
understand there is a problem and that we would like to help combat it," said 
Andy Price, junior in pre-nursing.

money toward fixing a fence at the Horse Teaching and Research 
Center. However, it didn't take long for members of the Horseman's 
Association to step in and help. 

"We always wanted to do something," said Chad Brown, senior in animal 
sciences and industry and club president, "but there's never been anything 
this big that would take a large group of people." 

The 30-plus members of the Horseman's Association broke out their 
chain saws and work gloves and began clearing a section offence, trees and 
shrubs so a new fence could be built for the unit, which was used by students 
for research and to sharpen their horse management skills. 

"Since most of the members ofHorseman's Associauon used the unit, the 
group volunteered to repair the fence," said Karen Moorman, freshman in 
animal sciences and industry. "The horse science class used the labs in the 
unit for breeding and training their horses." 

By mid-February, most of the trees had been cleared. The club members 
waited for warmer weather before building the new section offence. 

Randy Raub, assistant professor of animal sciences and industry and club 
adviser, said he was glad the Horseman's Association decided to take on the 

"They saw the need for the new fence and that it was going to be hard for 
the horse unit to get it done," Raub said. "Out of the goodness of their hearts, 
they decided to put something back into something they could get some 
good out of." 

Chain saws, gas, oil and manual labor for the project were donated by club 
members, who raised almost $500 for fence-building supplies by sponsoring 
a dance at TW Longhorn's. 

The organization met twice a month and included students interested in 
horses and horse owners. 

"The group wasn't just for members who had horses. Instead, it was an 
organization that allowed students to get together to discuss horses and listen 
to speakers," Moorman said. "For example, one speaker focused on animal 

Moorman said the association also sponsored horse competitions. 

"The main thing we do is a barrel racing and team roping competition," 
Moorman said. "Anyone could compete, but our group handled the money. 
The competitors paid entry fees, and then we provided prize money to the

its capabilities. After a calf was selected, the horse was 
directed by its rider to the chosen calf. At this point, the 
horse was trained to keep the calf away from the group. 

"The horses are trained to do this and actually they're very 
smart," Moorman said. "The rider only directs the reins." 
Brown said the club used to be 
oriented mainly toward the show 
industry, but because the club mem- 
bers' interests broadened, they par- 
ticipated in more community service 
projects. In the past, the Horseman's 
Association's activities included 
riding sessions for handicapped chil- 
dren, as well as sponsoring team rop- 
ing and team penning competitions for the community.

club members gained valuable experience, 
learned responsibility and received a social 
education while interacting with others. 

"I have met a lot of people. Helping with 
the team roping competition was a great 
experience," Moorman said. "It (team rop- 
ing) was extremely fun because we had to 
get the ropes off the steers. Even though I 
live on a farm, I have never worked with 
steers. It (team roping) was a difficult but 
good experience to help me in my career." 

Brown said he learned at one of his first 
Horseman's Association meetings that if people 
were interested in the horse industry, they had 
to make others aware of it. He said being a 
memberwas one of the best ways people could 
express interest in a horse industry career. 

" Many students gain exposure to things they 
don't know a whole lot about. It also allows 
them to keep in touch with the horse industry," 
Brown said "Not to mention, it's a lot of fun." 

iJoffelt and Brown pull a 
tree down a slope to get it out 
of the way. The 30 club 
members volunteered their 
time to the building project 
because they used the unit 
for research and to sharpen 
their horse management skills.

By Renee Martin and Jennifer Swanson 

Surrounded by more than 200 vases, members of the Retail Floriculture 
Club didn't have time to stop and smell the flowers. 

On Feb. 11, club members spent three hours preparing rose and 
carnation arrangements for their Feb. 1 2 sale. Each year, the club sold flowers 
for Valentine's Day, which served as the group's largest fundraiser. 

"The faculty really like it," said Mary Reed, senior in horticulture and 
club president. "The students also like to have an affordable gift." 

The arrangements sold for $5, and the club earned more than $250. 
Besides raising money, the fundraiser served as an educational experience for 
the members, most of whom were retail floriculture and horticulture majors. 

"The sale teaches the students how to make arrangements on a mass 
production level," said club adviser Kent Kimmins, professor of horticul- 
ture. "It allows them to get a feel for the floral industry, while at the same time 
raising money." 

The club used the sale's earnings to attract guest speakers to campus. The 
speakers were involved in the floral industry and made presentations to club 
and community members. 

"We have designers come and give demonstrations," Reed said. "These 
presentations usually attract people from the community as well as stu- 

Kimmins said the professionals provided the students an insight into the 
floral industry. Besides the lectures, he said club members also learned 
through tours. A small group traveled to Topeka and visited Stuppy's 

"We visited the wholesale part of Stuppy's" Reed said. "We wanted to 
learn more about the wholesale part of the industry." 

The club, which had monthly meetings, also planned to travel to 
Wamego for a March meeting. 

"We were invited to the Carriage House (Antiques and Collectibles) 
because the person we wanted to give a presentation on campus was unable

Because the club offered educational 
events, Kimmins encouraged students inter- 
ested in the floral industry to attend the 
monthly meetings. 

"Students who join get to know other 
people in their field," he said. "The club lets 
them interact socially." 

The club didn't require a huge time 
commitment from its members, Kimmins 
said. However, he said the energy members 
devoted to the club was worthwhile. 

"The time that they do spend (on club 
activities) is well spent in getting to know 
their industry," Kimmins said.

"It's easy to target their 

problems and help with 

the1rcollege transition ." 

Dawn Spivey 

leadership honorary fraternity, adopted a new mission that emphasized 
providing leadership development programs .for students. 

"We teach an emerging leadership lab class for freshmen leadership 
scholars along with Pat (Bosco), Bernard (Franklin) and Susan (Scott)," said 
Roger Denning, senior in electrical engineering and president of Blue Key. 
"It is a two-hour class — one hour focuses on lectures and one hour is to teach 
or coordinate leadership topics. The class basically gives freshmen leadership skills." 

Dawn Spivey, senior in social sciences and director of the leadership 
laboratory class, said the course focused on helping freshmen develop their 
own leadership styles. 

"We help students who are targeted as leadership scholars to expand their 
leadership to the collegiate level," Spivey said. "It is easy to target their 
problems and help with their college transition. It's rewarding for Blue Key 
members and the student leaders." 

Blue Key also sponsored Leadership Week, in which K-Scate alumni 
returned to K-State to address the topic of leadership. 

Chris Hupe, senior in finance, and Blake Kaus, senior in marketing, 
served as co-directors for Leadership Week. 

"We (Hupe and Kaus) were responsible for getting names of prospective 
speakers from deans. Getting prominent alumni to speak was our main 
goal," Kaus said. "I also spent a lot of time 
talking to people and coordinating sched- 
ules, and generating our theme — Leader- 
ship 2000. We chose that theme because it is 
exciting and enticing (enough) to lead us into the 
next century." 

Kaus said his role increased his confidence 

in leadership, and oral and written commu- 

nication skills. 

"The preparation was challenging, but when that week arrived, every- 
thing fell into place and ran smootHy," Kaus said. 

Another program Blue Key sponsored was Peer Leadership Consulting. 
The group spoke to campus organizations about various topics including 
motivation, leadership, communication, goal setting, time and goal man- 
agement, diversity and involvement on campus. 

"We adapt to every group and have resources available that we tap into. 
We don't make it (presentations) up," Denning said. "Instead, we do 
research and make sure we are knowledgeable about the topic." 

Student leaders also served the University through their Leadership 
Resource Center located in the K-State Union. Leadership information 
from books, journals and video tapes were available for students to check out. 

Confronting the issue of diversity, Blue Key members assisted Multicultural 
Student Council with the Multicultural Leadership Conference. The group 
also co-sponsored a high school leadership conference with the Student 
Government Association. 

Blue Key raised $7,000 for student scholarships which were awarded 
based on students' leadership, service and involvement. 

Although Denning spent an average of 1 5 hours per week working on 
Blue Key projects, he said he enjoyed investing his time in the club. 

"It's fun work, and it's not grueling. A lot of other members can do three 
to five hours a week depending on their position," Denning said. "I feel good 
because I've developed a lot of my own leadership skills, but at the same time 
I've helped others develop theirs. It was a win-win situation. I got a lot out 
of Blue Key and contributed a lot to others, especially working with all the 
people I have been able to work with."

"Most people would have 

to travel to experience 

this kind of music." 

Eric Brunt 

New Currents listened to jazz. 

The organization, which was composed of avid jazz listeners, tried to 
create a greater appreciation for jazz music through the Jazz Festival, co- 
sponsored Feb. 27 by the Union Programming Council's Eclectic Entertain- 
ment committee and Union Stadon. Approximately 70-75 people attended 
the festival, down from last year's attendance of 100. 

Bands participating included Unplugged, Mr. Direction, KSU Jazz 
Combo, Heavy Wood, Soup of the Day, Creative Minds and Hypertension. 
The bands didn't have an entry fee, but the public paid a $4 admission cost. 
The $289 earned went toward next year's festival. 

Henry Ashwood, senior in music education and Hypertension's coordi- 
nator, called Eric Brunt, senior in electrical engineering and president of 

New Currents to ask to participate in the 
festival, but all the bands had already been 
selected. However, his band was asked to 
perform after others withdrew. 

"Eric called me a few weeks before the 
festival and told me of a couple of drop- 
outs," Ashwood said. "When he asked me 

if we would like to be a replacement band, 

I was like, "Yes, let me get a band together."' 
Although he enjoyed the festival, Ashwood said it could be improved by 
having more people participate. 

"The intent behind it was good," Ashwood said. "But the outcome was 
not as good as it could have been. More people need to get involved." 

However, Ashwood said the festival provided listeners an opportunity to 
enjoy jazz music. 

"There is a need for jazz and fusion listening. Most people around here 
(Manhattan) just listen to rock or country," he said. "It (the festival) should 
boost student interest." 

ThepuiposeoftheJazzFestivalwas to expose listeners to diSerent lands of music 
"Most people would have to travel to experience this kind of music," 
Brunt said. "We don't do the festival for any other reason than for people to 
appreciate the music."

The club emphasized broadening people's musical inter- 
ests, but it didn't restrict its goal to students — Manhattan 
and Junction City residents also were encouraged to join. 

Gene Donovan, a retired Army and Civil Service worker, 
heard about the organization on a radio show and decided 
to attend a club meeting. 

"I'm crazy about jazz," Donovan said. "So, I gave it a shot 
(joined the club) and here I am." 

For Donovan, the benefits of music went beyond quality. 

"I'm 66 (years old). I feel like I'm 30," Donovan said. 
"Some people my age may be in rocking chairs, or the only 
trip they make is to the convenience store for a cup of coffee, 
but not me. I'm listening to jazz." 

Eric Brunt, senior in electrical engineering and New 
Currents president, said the club's meetings and events 
helped members develop a broader musical knowledge. 

"We've tried to get people to join by raising awareness of 
the club," Brunt said. "I encourage people to join because we 
are always open to new ideas."

American Student Body members sponsored documentary films, speak- 
ers and feature events throughout March. 

The events included a pipe ceremony by a medicine man from Montana, 
Navajo sand painters, a Navajo drumming group with traditional drum- 
ming and chanting and the Thunderbird Dancers. 

Working to support Native American ethnicity, the Native American 
Student Body was open to anyone interested in Native American culture. 

Harald Prins, NASB adviser and associate professor of social anthropol- 
ogy and social work, said the club was beneficial for its members, most of 
whom were Native Americans. 

"It's a small but dedicated group taking charge," Prins said. "Native 
American students are being groomed for leadership positions. The Univer- 
sity helps them achieve goals in their lives." 

Marilyn Hetzel, junior in secondary edu- 
cation and club president, said the group 
tried to schedule at least two talking circles. 
After purifying themselves with sage and 
cedar smoke, people said what was on their 
minds, and the discussion stayed in the room. 

"You get to know other people in the 
group," Hetzel said. "You become empathetic ~""" 

toward them." 

NASB sponsored speakers during April including Karren Baird-Olson, 
instructor in the department of sociology, anthropology and social work, 
and Russell Means, who was a leader in the American Indian Movement and 
a movie actor. He appeared in "The Last of the Mohicans." 

Education was the club's main emphasis. Prins said education fostered 
greater understanding and appreciation for the Native American culture and 
helped combat racism and discrimination. 

In an effort to attract high school students and potential transfers from 
Haskell Indian Junior College to K-State, NASB had Wildcat Recruitment 
and Weasel Day. They wanted Native American students to realize the 
University had students with diverse backgrounds. 

"We have announcements about multi-cultural issues such as Black 
History Month," Hetzel said. "We show respect for their ethnic back- 
grounds and they for ours." 

Members said they enjoyed participating in the club because it linked 
them with students of similar backgrounds. Chris Hall, sophomore in pre- 
veterinary medicine, said the NASB functioned as a support group. 

"It is a way to keep up with your culture," Hall said. "They know what 
you're talking about. You don't have to explain." 

"It's a small but dedi-

engineering technology students and the Salina Concrete Canoe Club 
the chance to mix ideas. 

Using concrete to construct a canoe for the mid-America Conference 
Concrete Canoe race turned their ideas into reality. The race, sponsored by 
the American Concrete Institute, took place at the University of Nebraska 
in April. The race's purpose was to find the best formula for a concrete canoe. 

Lynn Engle, senior in surveying technology and Concrete Canoe Club 
president, had been associated with the team for the past three years. He said 
the club's participation had improved through the years. 

"We have 1 1 really active members and eight or nine who help on and 
off," Engle said. 

Trying to find a usable formula, club members experimented with 
different base mixes. Instead of the normal gravel or sand, they used 
expanded shale, hollow beads and zonolite, which was a Styrofoam bead that 
achieved the needed light weight. 

"We are looking for a recipe that combines strength and lightness," Engle 
said. "You need a strong concrete with the right ingredients and materials." 

The canoe was expected to weigh under 150 pounds. Club members 
formulated and tested different mixtures throughout the year. The final 
testing began in February. 

"Testing consists of pouring five cylinders with the final formula, then 
breaking each one under hydraulic pressure," Engle said. "The cylinders are 
broken every seven days. The amount of pressure it takes to break the 
cylinder is the strength of the mixture." 

Club members said the process was time consuming and expensive. 

"One-quarter to one-third of our funds come from SGA (Student 
Governing Association)," said Dennis Shreves, associate professor of civil 
engineering technology and the club's adviser. "The rest we get mosdy from 
alums who have raced in the past." 

After the final testing was completed, the mixture was poured into molds. 

"In past years we have tried segmented pours. Molds for the sides and the 
bottom are poured and then tied together," Engle said. "It's like doing fender 
work on a car." 

However, club members chose to make the mold one piece instead of in 
segments. They entered their final product in the April competition, and the

In each category, teams were allowed to

teams had two canoes in four categories: 
men, women, co-ed and faculty. There 
were two female teams, six male teams and 
four co-ed teams. Two faculty members 
participated, but the faculty races were not 
part of the official competition. 

Although the team received a design 
award in 1991, Engle said the Concrete

' These items were important to students interested in magic shows 
that utilized chemical reactions. 

Alpha Chi Sigma, a professional chemistry fraternity, promoted the 
study of science and chemistry by presenting demonstrations and magic 
shows at area elementary and middle schools. Students who had completed 
10 credit hours of college chemistry courses were eligible to participate. 
Potential members had to pass a series of examinations to be initiated. 

Mike Riblett, junior in chemistry, said the group presented demonstra- 
tions and magic shows displaying chemical reactions at local and area 
elementary and middle schools. The group also helped Girl Scouts and Boy 
Scouts earn a science badge by completing work in the chemistry laboratory. 

"We don't do it (demonstrations) for pay or credit," Riblett said. "We do 
the demonstrations to change public perception and increase science interest 
and knowledge for students." 

The club's experiments raised the interest of potential members. 

"We're attracting new members with magic shows because they appeal 
to a lot of young members," said Keith Purcell, professor of chemistry and 
Alpha Chi Sigma adviser. "It (the club) is a plus for our own people at K-State 
because they entertain and communicate with the children." 

Purcell said the number of shows performed depended on the availability 
of club members. Riblett said he spent an average of four hours a week giving 
one-hour presentations. 

"We blend red cabbage and strain the red dye from it. Then we use a 
chemical reaction to determine whether it is an acid or base," Riblett said. 
"We also do an explosion with balloons by putting hydrogen in them and 
determine how a smoke bomb works." 

Although most experiments were tested repeatedly, unexpected acci- 
dents still occurred. 

"We put a drop of methanol into a bottle to perform an explosion. When 
the cannon fired, it shot out enough flames to start the table on fire," Riblett 
said. "Another example (of an accident) was when a student tried to tear an 
aluminum can that was treated with chemicals in half. The teacher cannot 
rip it in half without the same treatment. The child's can should've ripped, 
but it didn't. I felt bad for the child." 

Riblett said he enjoyed interacting with students and teachers. 

"I really enjoy the grade school children," Riblett said. "They get 
interested and ask questions. It (the magic show) definitely peaks their 
interest. They're not worried about being cool or embarrassed." 

Purcell said the club provided its members with good experience in 
dealing with people. 

"This (performing) is good training for our people," Purcell said. "They 
deserve the credit for interacting with teachers and students."

a home. Because they lacked an arena, team members had to sponsor 
tournaments in other cities. 

"We have no home games, but we're still a solid club. Everybody goes to every 
game," said Jake Kisel, senior in secondary education and team president. "We've 
even been written up in some hockey magazines. Right now, we're a team without 
a home." 

The University gained a hockey team after the Manhattan Hockey Club 
affiliated with the University in 1 992. 

"The team started at K-State last year. It is officially recognized as a University 

club by Student Governing Association," Kisel 


Although the team officially joined K-State, it 
still faced a lack of training space. The hockey team 
practiced twice a week in CiCo Park's indoor ice 
skating rink, but team members said the facilities 
were inadequate. 

"The rink really hurts us. We can't work on 
strategy because there isn't enough space," Kisel 

said. "It is good for us because it at least gets our ^ _ 

skates under us." 

Team members said poor practice conditions affected their playing perfor- 

"I think it hurts us because we don't have a good rink to practice on. We lack 
the opportunity to practice on full ice," said Scott Thorne, sophomore in business 
administration and the club's vice president. 

The hockey team also had to provide a majority of their own equipment due 
to a lack of funding. 

"We have a couple of sponsors, but that doesn't give us enough money. We have 
to supply our own equipment, but most of us have had it since high school," Kisel 
said. "This lack of funding puts us way behind other schools' teams." 

Although the team was unable to practice daily, Kisel said he was pleased

is definitely a lot of fun." 

Although the team members enjoyed the road trips, Thorne said the club would 

improve if Manhattan had a better ice skating rink. 

"If they put a bigger rink in town, we would be able to practice better and play

n any given night, virtually 
any team could beat any team. For 
the Wildcat baseball team, this say- 
ing held true. 

The season's highlights included 
victories over Wichita State and 
Arkansas, winning three of four 
games against KU and becoming 
the fifth team in school 
history to have a bat- 
ting average over .300. 

Despite these suc- 
cesses, the team also 
suffered disappoint- 
ments. Several players 
were injured, which 
left the pitching staff 
thin and forced Coach 
Mike Clark to use in- 
experienced players as 
substitutes for veter- 
ans. Inconsistent play 
plagued the Cats dur- 
ing Big Eight games. 
By the end of the sea- 
son, the highs and lows 
had balanced out to 
28 wins and 28 losses, 
and the Cats had their 
sixth consecutive .500 
season under Clark. 

Going into the sea- 
son, the team had several new play- 
ers. The Cats sustained losses due 
to graduation and the major league 

"We lost a lot of kids from the 
year before . We had a lot of untested 
players who had to step up and 
perform," Clark said. "We had 
trouble with consistency with the 
exception of Craig (Wilson) and 
Dan (Driskill)."

ents to go to regionals. I got a taste 
of what it was like to compete on a 
national level," Culp said. "We got 
close during some of our games. I 
still don't think Kansas State has 
earned the respect it can and will." 

Expectations for the new season 
were high. 

"We wanted to be competitive 
every game, and we wanted to make 
the Big Eight playoffs," Clark said. 
"We were picked fifth and finished 
sixth. It was the first time K-State 
wasn't picked last. For the most 
part we were competitive, but we 

weren't able to make the playoffs. 
We were able to compete, but we 
weren't able to be consistent." 

The Cats' inconsistent play was 
brought about because the players 
were worn down. 

"After our spring trip, we were 
on the verge of exhaustion. We had 
played 12 games in 10 
days and spent 25-30 
hours on a bus," Culp 
said. "We were really 
tired and lost a certain 
amount of sharpness." 
Returning from the 
spring trip, the Cats 
had compiled a 15-8 
first half season record. 
They opened Big Eight 
play with a four-game 
series against KU. 

Junior Brett Bock 
received his first win 
in game one as the Cats 
managed to hold the 
Jayhawks off for an 8-7 
win. Sophomore Dan

Baseball players' superstitions weren't lim- 
ited to just broken mirrors, black cats and 
ladders — gloves also brought bad luck. 

"You don't touch someone else's glove. 
A glove is a personal thing. It becomes 
molded to your hand. If someone else wears 
it, they can stretch it out," said Kirk Franz, 
freshman infielder. "If another person put it 
(my glove) on, then I took it and played and 
made an enor — that person cursed it. I'd 
have to burn it or get a new glove." 

Players believed success on the field was 
helped by motivational sayings written on 
the undersides of their baseball caps. Pat 
Ralston, freshmanpitcher.saidhe improved 
using the quote, "No Fear. Throw fast. More 
strike outs." 

Spirit was also promoted by using nick- 
names on the playing field. 

"Nobody uses their real names. We call 
James Matson 'Johnny Ballgame' because 
he looks like the guy on 'Johnny Be Good.' 
Jeff Ryan is 'Chubber' because his mom says 
he's putting on weight," Ralston said. "We 
also call Coach Clark 'Sparky' because he's 
the ultimate optimist. He always thinks 
we're going to win."

ing three four-game series against 
Oklahoma, Missouri and Iowa 

"We turned around the next 
series. We just started giving away 
ball games," Clark said. "We had 
trouble when we had the four-game 
series. Havingfour games inathree- 
day weekend, we couldn't put them 
away. There was always something 
that broke down. 

"The first half of the season we 
did a good job of platooning — 
switching around positions, but we 
were not consistent pitching-wise. 
We probably had some players who 
weren't quite ready," Clark said. 

Injuries also contributed to the 
inconsistent play. As the season 
progressed, the pitching rotation 
became thinner. The pitching staff 
lost Sean Pedersen, Tim Church- 
man and Kevin Sander to injuries, 
forcing Clark to use freshman Pat 
Ralston and reliever Bock in the 
starting rotation. 

"Brett was phenomenal in short 
relief. It would have been better to 
have him in a back-up spot, rather 
than thrown into the fire," Clark 
said. "We didn't have (Jason) 
Spalitto during the stretch. JeffRyan 
played hurt most of the year. All of 
those things kind of mounted up." 

While Clark struggled to find a 
solid line-up, the infield saw many 
changes. Left-handed outfielder 
Hanneman was converted to a 

pitcher early in the season. 

"I've always thought that if you 
have the right nine you should stick 
with them. He (Clark) had to ex- 
periment with them to find the 
right chemistry," senior Jason 
Spalitto said. "He had to shake up 
our team and try and get us back on 
track. But it didn't work out quite 

While the Cats had difficulties 
during the second half of the sea- 
son, they improved their record 
against nationally ranked Wichita 
State to 1-2 and took three out of 
five games from Nebraska. 

"It was really surprising to beat 
them (WichitaState),"Driskill said. 
"We weren't playing very well." 

Although they finished sixth in 
the league, the Cats showed they 
could play well against top teams. 
"Against WSU, even though 
we only won one out of three close 
games, we showed we could play 
with the number one team in the 
nation," Culp said. "I think we 
played Horida when they were num- 
ber three, and we gave them a good 
game. Even though we had some 
bad games in the Big Eight, we 
could compete with anybody when 
we played our best." 

Culp said the most frustrating 
part of the season was the knowl- 
edge they could play competively 
with the best in the nation, but 
then lose to lesser teams. 

Other players agreed the season 

was full of several disappointments. 

"It (our problem) was hard luck, 
and I thought a lot of teams played 
well. It started to snowball, and we 
got ourselves in a big hole and 
couldn't get out," Bocksaid. "I don't 
know if you can pinpoint anything. 
We just had bad luck at the wrong 

Clark agreed luck wasn't always 
on his team's side, but he said there 
were a few highlights to the season. 

"We had some tough luck. We 
didn't create our own breaks and 
win ball games," Clark said. "We 
didn't have anybody step up and 
make the difference. We had some 
high spots on individual games. 
Craig's (Wilson) season was great. 
He had the type of season kids 
dream about for college ball." 

Wilson was named Big Eight 
Player of the Year and first-team, 
all-Big Eight shortstop for the sec- 
ond straight season. He achieved 
his goal of hitting over .400, post- 
ing a .416 batting average and hit 
.405 in the Big Eight, placing him 
first in the conference. He ended 
his career at K-State by becoming 
the first K-State player on the 
United State's Olympic baseball 

"I was disappointed right in the 
end when we lost," Wilson said. "I 
don't know how to explain it. If we 
would have played the way we 
played against WSU, there's no

Although still not at par, the lady cats' fifth place 
finish breaks their 1 2th season atthe bottom, giving 
one golfer the chance to go to the ncaa regionals 


f recent accomplishments laid 
the foundation for successful pro- 
grams, the K-State women's golf 
program looked at a bright future. 

After finishing last in the Big 
Eight for 12 straight seasons, the 
team took fifth in the Big Eight 

"The fifth-place 
finish was a big accom- 
plishment for us," said 
senior Valerie Hahn, 
the team's second 
leader in averages. "It's 
something we' ve been 
shooting for since I 
have been here. We 
finally got the mon- 
key off our backs." 

The Lady Cats set 
new team records, in- 
cluding a record for a 
three-round tourna- 
ment (962 at the Big 
Eight Champion- 
ships) and a record for 
a single round (316 at 
New Mexico State). 

After these accom- 
plishments, Coach 
Mark Elliott was 
named the 1992 Big 
Eight Coach of the 

"He really deserved 
it. He brought new 
ideas and has done a 
lot for this team," 
Hahn said. "He's posi- 
tive and believes in us, 
and that's important." 

Although the squad 
lost three of the top five players, the 
fall team returned with a talented 
group. The 12-member team, which 
was the largest ever, was led by Hahn, 
the lone senior. 

"This team had a lot of talent, 
but it didn't have much experi- 
ence. It was a young team with only 
two upperclassmen," Hahn said. 

By Stephen McKee 

"This team hits the ball a lot better 
than any other team that K-State 
has had. I think they are going to be 
the best team K-State has had." 

Not only was the squad larger 
than past Lady Cat teams, but the 
talent level was deeper.

player last year won't be good 
enough to make the five-player trav- 
eling squad this year," Elliott said. 

The fall was a learning season 
for the inexperienced golfers. 

"This group is fairly young," 
Elliott said. "The fall was impor- 
tant because we got those girls some 


The season started at New 
Mexico, whete the team made a 
strong showing and finished sev- 
enth in a field of 15 schools. Top 
performers for the team were sopho- 
more Jacque Wright, who tied for 
1 2th place, and Hahn, who tied for 

"That was probably 
one of our best tourna- 
ments of the year," 
Elliott said. "We fin- 
ished strong against 
good competition." 

The team also had 
a good tournament at 
Iowa State. In a field 
of 1 1 schools, the team 
placed second. The 
team was led by sec- 
ond-place finishes of 
Wright and Hahn. 

Hahn led the squad 
with an 81.5 average 
in the fall. Elliott said 
she had a chance to 
qualify for the NCAA 
regional tournament. 
This was the first year 
a K-State woman had 
that opportunity. 

"I was a little disap- 
pointed with how I 
played. I had a lot of 
good rounds, but in a 
few rounds I would put 
myself out of a tourna- 
ment," Hahn said. "I

Big Eight Coach of 
the Year Elliott didn't take the credit 
for the team's turnaround. He gave 
all the credit to the players. 

"Obviously, it's an honor that I 
really appreciate," Elliott said. "But 
the real honor should go to the girls 
who worked hard in getting the golf 
program turned around. Winning 
this award is a tribute to them."

When the women's golf team went to 
Iowa, they thought they were embarking 
on an ordinary road trip. They were wrong. 

"We were going to Iowa City for a 
tournament," said Sarah Morehead, jun- 
ior. "All of a sudden we saw a sign saying, 
'We Buckle Up in Minnesota.' " 

The team's driver had received the 
wrong directions and drove five hours out 
of the way into the wrong state. 

"It was a long day," Morehead said. "We 
spent a total of 13 hours in the van, and we 
missed our practice round."

Wildcats improve team and personal standings as 
they send the second golfer in the history of k-state 
to nationals and post record-breaking scores 


X he men's golf team met their 
goal for the spring 1992 season — 
for the first time in at least 15 years 
they did not finish last in the Big 
Eight. Rather, they finished in sixth 

"It was a successful spring sea- 
son," said Coach Mark Elliott. 
"Some players didn't play as well as 
they could have, but others stepped 
up and played well." 

K-State finished sixth in the Big 
Eight tournament in Hutchinson. 
Junior Richard Laing placed sev- 
enth out of 40 players and Jim 
Brenneman placed 28th. 

"We had a lot of the success we 
were expecting (to have), but still 
surprised a lot of people," Jim 
Brenneman, junior, said. 

The team won their first tourna- 
ment of the season at Southwest 
Missouri State in Springfield, Mo. 

"K-State hasn't won a tourna- 
ment since 1989," Brenneman said. 

The team placed first out of 12 
teams. Sophomore Chad Judd took 
second, Brenneman finished sixth 
and Laing finished eighth. 

"We had five tournaments, and 
the team played well in three," 
Elliott said. 

The second tournament was at 
Wichita State. The team placed 
seventh out of 15 teams. Laing fin- 
ished 12th out of 75 players, and 
Brenneman finished 24th. 

Birmingham, Ala., was the site 
of the third tournament, and the 
team placed fourth out of 10 teams. 
Team members also did well indi- 
vidually, as Laing finished third 
and Judd placed 13th.

In Nashville, Term., the team 
placed ninth out of 18 teams, and 
Laing finished 20th out of 98 play- 
ers. Brenneman and sophomore 
Sean Robertson tied for 26th. 

A highlight of the season was

Invitational. Laing placed fifth with a 
cumulative score of 223 after three 
rounds. (Photo by Craig Hacker) 

Laing's qualifying for the NCAA 
regionals, becoming the first K- 
State player in 30 years to accom- 
plish the feat, Elliott said. 

"I set goals at the beginning of 
the year to make Big Eight, NCAA 
regionals and to win a tournament," 
Laing said. 

His season favorite was the re- 

gional tournament held in Dallas. 

"It was a gorgeous course, and it 
was tough," Laing said. "I came 
through and did what it took (to 

In order to qualify for the NCAA 
regionals, Laing had to finish in the 
top two out of 6 1 players. To qualify 
for nationals, Laing needed to place 
in the top six out of 1 1 1 players. At 
nationals, a par or one under was 
needed for him to succeed, but he 
wasn't able to get the score. 

"Laing did great at regionals, but 
he didn't play so well at nationals," 
Elliott said. 

Laing said he had several oppor- 
tunities to be an all- America selec- 
tion, but fell short every time. 

"I was hoping to make all- Ameri- 
can and win a tournament," Laing 
said, "but I just couldn't seem to 
pull it off." 

A downfall for the team was not 
making NCAA regionals. 

"If we would have played consis- 
tently well all year, we would have 
gone to NCAA regionals," 
Brenneman said. "We did good this 
season, but we wanted to do better." 

Although they wanted to im- 
prove more, the team felt they had 
accomplished a lot. 

"It was a stepping-stone season," 
Laing said. "It was a season of im- 
provement and left a lot of hope for 
next year." 

Improvement was evident in the 
fall season. The Cats put together 
the best season at K-State as they 
posted some of the highest placings 
in school history. They placed sec- 
ond at KU and first at Iowa State.

Richard Laing's continuing goal to be the best has 
made him only the thirdgoljerin the history of K- 
Statetogo to regionalsandthesecondto Nationals 


Richard Laing's golf swing wasn't the only thing he had to 
perfect. He started his senior year at K-State learning to be 
a husband and a father. 

Laing and his wife Kristi learned at the beginning of the 
academic year that they were expecting their first child. 

Laing, a senior in marketing, planned on continuing golf 
after graduation. With the support of Kristi, he decided to 
dedicate five years in his pursuit of turning professional. 

"That's the basic rule for golfers. If you haven't made it by 
then, it's time to find something else," Laing said. "We've 
talked about it, and she is all for it." 

Both agreed he should further his golf career. They shared 
the philosophy that people had to go after what they wanted. 

"You can't look back on life and say, 'I wish I had done it. 
I had the chance but I never tried,' " Laing said. "I don't want 
to spend my life wondering if I could have made it." 

Many people told Laing that he wouldn't succeed in golf 
because he was married, but he disagreed. 

"I think it will be easier to make it. I'll always have 
someone there for support, Laing said. "Otherwise, I would 
spend my life living from hotel to hotel room alone." 

Kristi knew life with Laing's golfing career would be hard, 
but she was excited for him. 

"It was his dream, but now it's my dream, too," Kristi said. 
"It means a lot to me because it means a lot to him." 

Laing, a native of Bonner Springs, faced many road blocks 
during his golfing career. The frustrations started after a full- 
ride to Cal-State Fulerton was dropped. A month before he 
was to attend the school, the golf program was dropped. 

"No one knows why they dropped it," Laing said. "My 
coach started trying to find a place for me to go. Arizona 
State, UCLA and Santa Barbara showed interest. Santa 
Barbara showed the most (interest), so I decided to go there." 

He spent two months there before family tragedy brought 
him home. On the same day, Laing's grandmother died and 
his sister's fiancee was killed in a motorcycle accident. 

"I decided that I needed to stay around here," Laing said. 
"Being around family was more important." 

Laing then came to K-State and set out on his path to 
become one of the University's best golfers. 

During his first year, Laing made it to regionals, becoming 
the third person in K-State history to be invited. He said 
although his sophomore year was a let-down, he came back 
strong his junior year. 

"I set three goals for myself — to win a tournament, make 
all Big Eight and make it to regionals," Laing said. 

He reached all of the goals, except winning a tournament. 
He was picked seventh for all-Big Eight and placed sixth at 
regionals. This sent him to nationals which made him the 
second person from K-State to go. 

Laing was picked in Golf Week Magazine as a pre-season 
all- American before the fall season. 

"Every year I try to do something I haven't done yet to 
keep me going. Now I want the whole team to go to 
nationals," Laing said. "I want the team to make it before I 
want just myself to make it."

The wildcats' and lady cats' high finishes at the big 
eight championships are topped by five going to the 
ncaa meet and three are selected all-america athletes 


By Stephanie Hoelzel and Trina Holmes 

he outdoor track team finished 
high on the charts at the 1992 Big 
Eight Championships in Norman, 
Okla., where the Lady Cats cruised 
to a second-place berth. 

However, not all of the players 
were happy with their finish. 
Deborah Schmidt, senior, was dis- 
satisfied with second place. 

"I was disap- 
pointed because I 
never won the Big 
Eight Champion- 
ships. It was some- 
thingl really wanted," 
Schmidt said. "I 
should have been able 
to do it my senior year, 
but I didn't." 

Although the team 
did not finish first, one 
team member almost 
set a school record. 

"The biggest per- 
formance for us was 
Kathy Janicke in the 
conference meet," said 
CliffRovelto, assistant 
track and field coach. 
"She jumped 19-5 inthelongjump 
and 4 1 - 1/4 in the triple j ump. There 
are only two other girls in the his- 
tory of K-State to j ump farther than 

Both of Janicke's marks were 
personal records. 

"They were personal bests, but 
there's room for improvement," said 
Janicke, junior. "The distances 
weren't good, comparatively speak- 
ing. Other universities have better 
distances, but everybody was per- 
forming well at this meet." 

Despite battling against inju- 
ries, the men's team pulled off a 
fourth place finish at the champi- 

onships. Rovelto said his team per- 
formed as well as possible. 

"The kids did all they could," 
Rovelto said. "We had several good 
performances from them. They

Throughout the season, 13 team 
members were redshirted. 

"I was disappointed 
because I never won the 
Big Eight Championships.

wanted. I should have 
been able to do it my se- 
nior year, but I didn't."

"They were redshirted to give 
them a rest between the indoor and 
outdoor seasons because track is 
hard on their bodies," Schmidt said. 
"Sometimes it was done to extend 
their eligibility. It varied with the 

Schmidt said some players would 
have made a difference at meets 
had they not been redshirted. 

"Their being redshirted hurt the 
team because there were people 
who could have scored points for 
the team. That would have helped 
us out," Schmidt said. "But it was 
usually a mutual decision between 
the coach and the athlete." 

The Wildcats' conference per- 
formance was highlighted with first- 
place finishes by Robert Cogswell, 
senior high jumper, and Clifton 
Etheridge, senior triple jumper. 

Some unexpected finishes also 
gave the team a boost. Senior Todd 
Trask placed fourth in both the 
10,000-meter run and the 3,000- 
meter steeplechase. 

"It's tough to place 
in both of those 
events," Rovelto said.

points for us because it

Etheridge was the 
only Cat to reach the 
NCAA meet in Aus- 
tin, Texas. Once there, 
he placed 1 1th in the 
triple jump. He was 
the only all- American 
chosen from the men's 
outdoor team. 

Four members of 
the Lady Cats also 
qualified for the 
NCAA meet. At the meet, senior 
Connie Teaberry placed fifth in 
the high jump, senior Christy Ward 
placed 1 Oth in shotput and Schmidt 
placed 11th in the javelin. Teab- 
erry, Ward and Schmidt were cho- 
sen to be all-Americans. 
Gwendolyn Wentland, sophomore, 
was the fourth participant, but 
didn't place. 

Although Schmidt was happy 
with winning her event at the KU 
Relays and her all- American selec- 
tion, she still pushed herself. 

"As an athlete, you should never 
be satisfied or you'll never reach 
your potential," she said.

They assumed the identities of Sabrina,

The runners pretended they were differ-

fighters invented plots and found clues as 
they ran.

ing the longer practice runs, and it's just fun 
to act silly."

They said he wouldn't he ahle to make it, hut 

through his hard work and determination he 

proved them wrong. 


WITH THE HELP OF K-STATE'S mechanical engi- 
neering department, Kevin Saunders, a 1978 graduate in 
agricultural economics, brought home the bronze from 
Barcelona, Spain, in the Paralympics, a division of the 
Olympics for disabled individuals. 

Saunders competed in the pentathlon, which included 
the shot put, javelin, discus, 1,500-meter and 200-meter 
events. The wheelchair he used for field events, called a field 
chair, was designed by K-State engineeringstudents. Saunder's 
field chair was custom-made to fit his particular needs. 

In the summer of 1992, Brad Eisenbarth, senior in me- 
chanical engineering, Brad Norman, junior in mechani- 
cal engineering, and Paul Snider and Maury Wilmoth, 
graduates of mechanical engineering, worked with Prakash 
Krishnaswami to design two chairs. One was a standard chair 
with sturdy hand grips. The other used swivels in the chair's 
seat to create momentum in the shot put event, Swenson 
said. The swivels compensated for the lower body strength 
Saunders lost when he was injured. 

In 1981, Saunders was thrown 300 feet from a grain 
elevator when it exploded in southern Texas. The explosion 
threw him onto a concrete parking lot, resulting in a broken 
back, collapsed lungs and massive internal bleeding. 

"I heard a doctor say I wouldn't live," Saunders said. 

He spent almost a year in the hospital and said the hardest 
part was discovering he would never walk again. 

"Pretty soon you have to play the cards you are dealt," 
Saunders said. 

That was exactly what he did. 

He entered his first road race in 1983 and used an old 
hospital wheelchair for the competition. During the race, an 
official asked him to withdraw from the competition. 

"I said, 'No way, lady,' " Saunders said. 

He went on to finish the race. 

"That was the day I set my goal," he said. "Through mental 
drive, determination and commitment, you can be the best 
at anything. You can combat life, no matter what obstacles 
you are faced with." 

After he graduated, Saunders excelled in the pentathlon, 
breaking records and earning world champion medals. In 
1988 at Seoul, Korea, he earned a bronze in the pentathlon 
in the Paralympics. 

In July 1991 at the Victory Games in Long Island, New 
York, Saunders was awarded gold medals in the javelin and 
pentathlon, a silver in the discus and a bronze in the shot put. 
The meet ranked Saunders as the best in the nation. That 
same month, Saunders received a silver medal at the Stoke 
Mandville Wheelchair Games in England and received the 
highest points for a paraplegic. 

Saunders' other accomplishments included acting in the 
Oliver Stone film, "Born on the Fourth of July," and being the 
first disabled person in history appointed to the President's 
Council on Physical Fitness. 

Saunders said his greatest accomplishment was being a 
motivational speaker. He spoke to different types of groups to 
help others overcome their limitations. 

"That means more to me than winning medals," he said.

tennis team showed their endur- 
ance as the semifinal match of the 
Big Eight Conference stretched over 
six hours. The Lady Cats triumphed 
over the Cowgirls in a 5-4 finish. 
This upset ended Oklahoma's 1 1- 
year reign as league champion. 

"Team-wise, that 
(semifinal match) was 
the best win by far in 
the three years I've 
been here — the big- 
gest upset. Individually, 
it was the best match 
Neili (Wilcox) and I 
ever played together," 
junior Suzanne Sim 

Although their 
battle for the title was 
stunted by KU, the 
netters' second-place 
victory in the Big Eight 
Conference was the 
highest league finish 
in K-State history. 
Another first for the 
team was receiving 
votes for the nation- 
wide Top 25 poll. 

International students, includ- 
ing freshmen Michele Riniker, 
Switzerland, and Karin Lusnic, Yu- 
goslavia, were assets. The strong 
skills ofRiniker and Lusnic enabled 
them to become the first nationally 
ranked K-State netters. Riniker 
ended the season ranked 66th, and 
Lusnic was ranked 76th. Riniker 
also broke her own record for s ingles 
play. Her 6-1 finish was the best 
league record in K-State history for 
a No. 1 singles player. 

Besides contributing to the ten- 
nis team, international students also 
contributed to the community. 

"The perception in good Ameri-

can tennis players is that Florida or 
California are the places to be. 
Unless they have a reason, Kansas 
isn't top on their list," said Steve 
Bietau, head coach. "A number of 
international players play at a higher 
level than some Americans who 
are attracted here, which helps el- 
evate the program. International

students also play an educational 
role. They bring different cultures, 
languages, political systems and 
ways of living. Their backgrounds 
are something they contribute to 
the team and community." 

Off the court, team members 
excelled in the classroom. Sim won 
a spot on the Big Eight all-Aca- 
demic team for the second straight 
season, and Riniker was awarded a 
spot for the first time. Wilcox, a 
graduate assistant, showed her suc- 
cess in the classroom by being in- 
cluded on the Big Eight Academic 
Honor Roll. The players saw these 
honors as major achievements be- 

cause of all the time they devoted to 
tennis. Practices, games and road 
trips left little time for studying. 

Sim learned to maintain the 
balance between tennis and school. 
"I guess you have to be organized 
to balance the two. I can't sit still 
for 20 minutes — I have to study," 
Sim said. 

Lack of support on 
road trips was more dif- 
ficult than getting used 
to foreign courts. 

"It wasn't really 
that difficult to get 
used to other courts. 
You know you have to 
do it. I mean, every- 
one has to go through 
it sooner or later," 
Wilcox said. "The part 
that gives the other 
team an advantage is 
they have more fans. 
For instance, KU had 
a big booster club at 
the Big Eight Confer- 
ence game. Fans can 
get pretty crazy and ob- 
noxious, which makes 
a big difference." 
Another problem 
was few members. This was com- 
pounded when players sustained 
injuries that prevented them from 
participating in matches. 

"We had injury problems. 
Michele Riniker had a foot prob- 
lem, Martine Shrubsole and Neili 
Wilcox had back problems and 
Mareke Plocher was hit by a car 
when she was on her bike," Bietau 
said. "Our lack of depth was our 
weakness, but we overcame it. We 
had the best year anyone has had in 
the history of the program. Getting 
there, though, was like pushing a 
ball uphill. It was hard because we 
were going against tradition."

258 in Suzanne Sim 

Suzanne Sim's hard work and confidence in her 
ability to be the best helped her become one ojK- 
State's top tennis players. 


AT AGE 10, Suzanne Sim picked up a tennis racket for 
the first time. At age 12, she began playing competitively. 
Modeling her skills after Chris Evert Lloyd, Sim was the only 
player from her high school team to go to state. 

"Chris Evert Lloyd is my role model. She's always been a 
solid player and a classy person," Sim said. "She's been 
consistently great her whole career. I also like how she plays 
her ground stroke game because that's mainly what I do." 

Just as Evert Lloyd was her role model, Sim inspired her 
younger sisters to take up the game. 

"My family is always there for me. I'm from Kansas City, 
and my parents have come to every match in Manhattan, 
Lawrence and Arkansas. They've also come to almost every 
tournament I've played in since I was 12. Both of my sisters 
play, so they come and watch also," Sim said. "My youngest 
sister got into tennis because I started playing, and now she 
could probably beat me." 

The admiration Sim received from others reflected the 
confidence she had in herself. While competing in high 
school, Sim learned to control the mental aspect of tennis. 

"My biggest weakness has been a weakness I had during 
my high school career. I got mad at myself a lot and didn't 
know how to deal with it. That was bad because one of the 
most important aspects of tennis is the mental game," Sim 
said. "Now I don't get mad. I know how to handle my anger, 
and I look more natural on the court." 

Her mental control paid off, and Sim was voted the most 
improved player at K-State two years in a row. 

"I got the award my sophomore and junior years," Sim 
said. "I thought it was an honor that everyone recognized I 
had improved." 

Off the court, Sim was known for her aversion of pop. 

"I haven't had any pop since I was 16 years old. It's what 
I'm known for," Sim said. "Everywhere we go on road trips, 
people on the team ask me if I want a pop as a joke. They even 
gave me the 'I Put Pepsi Out of Business' award." 

But Sim also earned a more serious honor by setting the K- 
State flexibility record. 

"Four times a year we perform strength tests at the weight 
center. I've won the most flexible award every year, and I hold 
the tennis record for flexibility," Sim said. "I used to do 
gymnastics, and I think that helped my flexibility. I've never 
had a major injury since I've been at K-State. That's really 
rare in a college athlete." 

Her physical fitness, a pasta dinner and a good night's rest 
before a match helped Sim become a strong player. 

Sim said one of the major highlights of her career was 
taking second in No. 5 singles and competing in the Riveria 
All- American tournament in California where only the top 
200 players in the nation competed. 

Sim attributed her tennis success to hard work. 

"If I want to be the best at something, I must work very 
hard at it. I know I want to be the best, so I work hard," Sim 
said. "If you set high goals for yourself and work hard, you can 
be anything."

With a squad consisting of six freshmen and one 
senior, an inexperienced lady cat team brought a new

The volleyball team started 
building a foundation by gaining 
experience throughout the season. 

Despite posting a 7-22 record 
and ending 0-12 in Big Eight play, 
Coach Patti Hage-meyer said the 
season was successful. 

"The level of play 
we're at now is so much 
h igher than it has been 
in the past," Hage- 
meyer said. "We're 
playing a whole differ- 
ent kind of volleyball." 

The six freshmen 
team members faced 
new challenges. 

"This year I learned 
a lot about what's in- 
volved with playing at 
this level, physically as 
well as mentally," said 
Chi Dau, freshman set- 

The freshmen play- 
ers weren't the only 
ones who made adj ust- 
ments. Old members 
had to adjust to a new team atti- 

"Having that many new players 
gave a new personality to the team. 
There were new ideas, new creativ- 
ity and new desires to deal with," 
Hagemeyer said. "There was a lot of 
unpredictability that led to a whole 
lot of fun." 

Because the freshmen composed 
the main body of the team, they 
had to learn immediately how to 
play on a collegiate level. 

"The freshmen stepped in and 
immediately had to play. We 

By Julie White 

learned what to expect," Dau said. 
"In practice, we were put in so 
many game situations, we knew 
what we were supposed to do — not 
that we always did it, but we knew 
what to do." 

The team's attitude remained 
positive despite the losing record. 

A win against KU in a game causes Coach Patti Hagemeyer to 
jump up in excitement. The Lady Cats lost the match to KU 15- 
7, 7-15, 3-15, 14-16. This season was Hagemeyer's second 
season as head coach at K-State. She led the team to a 7-22 
record. (Photo by J. Kyle Wyatt) 

"The players went through a 
phase where they were disap- 
pointed, but they bounced back 
fast," Hagemeyer said. 

The discouraging record put 
added pressure on the players. 

"I thought about my perfor- 
mance and the team's performance , 
as opposed to looking at it as wins 
and losses," Dau said. "You go out to 
win, but that's not what it's all 
based on. We're a very physically 
sound team. We'te in good shape, 
and we have good work ethics." 

Senior Kathy Saxton closed her 

career by claiming one Big Eight 
and six school records. Saxton set 
the Big Eight record for attacks in a 
four-game match (77) against To- 
ledo. She topped the single-season 
charts in kills (505), attacks (1,232), 
kills in a three-game match (25), 
attacks in a three-game match (51), 
kills in a four-game 
match (35) and at- 
tacks in a four-game 
match (77). 

Throughout her K- 
State career, she also 
ranked fourth in kills 
(1,023), fourth in at- 
tacks (2,551) and 
fourth in aces (120) . 
"The records are 
nice, but I try not to 
get too caught up in 
that, "Saxton said. 
"Volleyball is a team 
sport. I'd trade in the 
records for a trip to the 
Big Eight Tourna- 

Saxton also re- 
ceived all-Big Eight 
honorable mention. 
"Volleyball is something I'll al- 
ways look back on fondly," Saxton 
said. "I had a lot of fun (playing)." 
Dau and freshman Jill Dugan 
also etched their names into the K- 
State and Big Eight record books. 
, Dau had 1,089 assists this sea- 
son, placing her second on the 
single-season charts. She tied two 
school records with 43 assists against 
Oklahoma in a three-game match 
and 74 assists in a four-game match 
against DePaul.

Hagemeyer and Dau both said 
the highlight of the season was 
when they took a game from 14th- 
ranked Colorado. 

"They showed a glimmer of what 
is yet to come during the Colorado 

game," Hagemeyer said. 

Although the team didn't have a

a list of record-breaking successes.

Beginning her fifth and final year on the volleyball team, 
Kathy Saxton was the lone senior on a team with six 

"I tried to lead by example," Saxton said. "I never thought 
of myself as a leader." 

Although the team didn't obtain many victories, Saxton 
had a record-breaking season. She set six University records 
including the most kills and attacks in a season. She also stole 
the Big Eight record for the most kills in a four-game match. 

"I didn't even know I had broken the Big Eight record. 
After the game they asked me about it, and that's when I 
found out," Saxton said. "It was exciting, but I try not to think 
about the records I broke. I would have traded them in for a 
Big Eight Tournament trip. To break so many records shows 
the team was doing something right." 

Saxton started playing volleyball in eighth grade to get in 
shape for the basketball season. Although she excelled in 
both sports at Mulvane High School, basketball was first on 
her mind. 

"I had always intended on playing basketball," Saxton 
said. "I was brought up playing basketball." 

A Wichita State volleyball camp during her sophomore 
year made her realize she was skilled in volleyball. Coaches 
at the camp discovered her ability. 

"The coaches really worked with me at camp, and I got to 
play with good players," Saxton said. "After that camp, I 
started going to other volleyball camps as much as I could." 

After high school graduation, Saxton received offers to 
play volleyball at various schools. However, she decided to be 
a walk-on at K-State. 

"I had met a lot of the team already and I liked them," 
Saxton said. "Plus, the accounting program was strong." 

Saxton's first year at K-State was difficult. She was red- 
shirted her freshman year so she could improve her skills. 

"I was so far behind everyone. I needed to catch up and 
figure out what college ball was all about, so I was a ball 
shagger," Saxton said. "It was hard after being a star in high 
school, but I made it through (that time)." 

Saxton's record-breaking career at K-State didn't cause 
her academics to suffer. She was named to the all-District 
Seven Team and included on the ballot for Academic ail- 

Saxton said she considered going overseas to continue 
playing volleyball, but didn't want to put her education on 

"I've decided to go to graduate school instead of getting a 
job. It's going to be weird being here without playing," Saxton 
said. "Now I'm going to have a year as a normal student." 

Saxton said her mother was more upset with the end of her 
volleyball career than she was. 

"It hasn't quite hit me yet that I'm through," Saxton said. 
"Right now, it just seems like the end of another season. I'm 
not quite ready to turn in my knee pads."

Dreams of a bowl appearance ran through the heads 
of the wildcat footballteam and fans, but the cats put 
together a 5-6 record and went 2-5 in the blg elght 


By Marcie Frederikson amd Jenni Stiverson 

he season's outlook was bright 
as 16 starters returned to a team 
that finished 7-4 and challenged 
for a Big Eight title in 1991. 

Fans' expectations for the pro- 
gram were high after the '91 team 
had one of the biggest turnarounds 
in college football history. The team 
was close to winning a 
trip to the Orange 
Bowl. Even Sports Il- 
lustrated, in an Aug. 
31 feature about the 
team, was looking for- 
ward to K-State's sea- 

But the new year 
brought changes to the 
team. Although the 
defense had eight 
starters returning, the 
offense began the sea- 
son with many new 
starters in important 
positions. Big Eight 
passing leader Paul 
Watson had gradu- 
ated, as well as three 
top receivers. Andre 
Coleman and Gerald 
Benton remained to 
lead the team. Benton 
had 603 yards on 38 receptions, 
which was the ninth best total in K- 
State's single-season history. 
Coleman followed with 336 yards 
on 25 receptions. 

The return of star running back 
Eric Gallon was questionable after 
he was injured in preseason. Gallon 
suffered a knee injury, which al- 
most forced him to miss part of the 
non-conference season. 

A record-breaking 32,712 fans 
were on hand to watch the Wild- 
cats win their third-consecutive 
season opener with a 27- 1 2 victory 
over Montana and Gallon rush for 
87 yards. After they took a 3-0 lead 

on a 34-yard field goal from junior 
kicker Tate Wright, the Cats never 
trailed in the game. 

Another dilemma facing the 
team was deciding who would fill 
the starting position of quaterback. 
Jason Smargiasso won the role and 
started in nine out of the 1 1 games.

TDs by a quarterback with eight. (Photo by Craig Hacker) 

He passed a total of 990 yards with 
72 completions on 149 attempts. A 
new K-State single-season record 
for rushing touchdowns by a quar- 
terback was also set by Smargiosso 
with eight. Matt Garber also con- 
tributed 524 passing yards and two 

After winning the opener 
against Montana, K-State came out 
of the locker room to defeat Temple 
35-14. Junior free safety Jaime 
Mendez had the highlight of the 
game with four interceptions, which 
set the Big Eight interception mark 
and a K-State single-game inter- 
ception mark. Former Iowa all- 

American and K-State defensive 
coordinator Bob Stoops said he was 
amazed by Mendez's performance. 
"That's hard to do in practice, 
but I wasn't shocked because I know 
what Jaime is capable of doing. 
That's as high as we've had anyone 
grade out since I've been here," 
Stoops said. "To think 
they (Temple) caught 
only twoof their passes 
and Jaime caught three 
in the first half is just 

K-State defeated 
New Mexico State in 
the third game 13-0, 
which extended their 
winning streak to six 
games. The winning 
streak was the longest 
in the Big Eight at the 
time and the longest 
at K-State since 1934- 
35. With three games 
and three wins under 
their belts, the Cats 
were ready to take on 
KU in Lawrence. 

"We were practic- 
ing and playing hard 
and went to KU with 
lots of confidence. After our three 
wins, we felt we were ready to play," 
said Eric Wolford, offensive guard. 
"It wasn't on our minds that KU 
was a nationally-ranked team. We 
went to win." 

The outcome of the KU game 
was not what the team or fans had 
anticipated. The Cats were slaugh- 
tered7-31 inftontof52,000people. 
The offense was held to negative 
yardage in the first half. The only 
score of the game was an intercep- 
tion run back 80 yards late in the 
second quarter for a touchdown by 
senior strong safety C.J. Masters.

Although the offense struggled 
throughout the season, the defense 
proved to be successful. Masters 
and Mendez were first and second 
in the Big Eight in interceptions. 
Masters also finished second in the 
NCAA with seven interceptions, 
while Mendez finished 10th. The 
Cats' defense was ranked second in 
the Big Eight in yards per rush, pass 
efficiency defense and yards per play. 
The Cats also led the Big Eight in 
interceptions with 21. 

After the loss to KU, the team 
spent three more games on the road, 
making it the longest road trip in 46 
years. They were defeated by Utah, 
Colorado and Oklahoma before 
returning to Wagner Field to ap- 
pear for their third nationally tele- 
vised game in history on ESPN. 

Followers of the Cats were pre- 
pared to "Stuff the Stadium" to 
cheer on the team. "Stuff the Sta- 
dium" yard signs were distributed 
throughout the Manhattan com- 
munity. As fans entered the sta- 
dium, 20,000 pompons were passed 
out. A fireworks display during half- 
ame entertained the crowd. A 
crowd of 23, 815 people wasonhand 

to witness the 22-13 victory over 
the Iowa State Cyclones. Fans 
showed their excitement about win- 
ning by tearing down the goal post 
at the north end of the field. 

After the win at home, the Cats 
were on the road to Missouri to face 
the Tigers. Although the Cats were 
picked to win, they didn't break 
their losing streak for road games. 
After Mizzou opened with a 27-7 
lead in the third quarter, the Cats 
put together a scoring drive that 
moved the ball 98 yards in 10 plays 
for a Smargiasso one-yard touch- 
down. But the play was the end of 
the Cats' scoring as the team lost 
14-27, extending their overall 
record to 4-5. 

Back in Manhattan for the 
Homecoming game, the Cats pre- 
pared to face Oklahoma State. The 
team wanted to extend their five- 
game winning streak at home and 
its first perfect home season (5-0) 
since 1934. 

Four interceptions, two fumble 
recoveries and a blocked field goal 
boosted the Cats to a 10-0 victory 
over the Cowboys. Defense won 
the game for K-State as the Cats 
had their second shutout.

"Our defense played great. We 
give all the credit to our defense," 
Benton said. 

Coach Bill Snyder also agreed 
the defense was responsible for the 
game's outcome. 

"That was the finest defensive 
effort we had," Snyder said. "One, 
we played so well defensively and 
two, that was an Oklahoma State 
team that put some numbers up in 
the last couple of weeks." 

As the end of the season ap- 
proached, the team and fans real- 
ized a bid for a postseason bowl 
game was lost. But the Cats didn't 
finish the season without a bowl 
appearance — they appeared in the 
Coca Cola Bowl in Tokyo, Japan, 
Dec. 5. The Cats squared off over- 
seas against Nebraska in the Tokyo 
Dome. K-State was paid $400,000 
for playing in the bowl, plus airfare, 
hotel rooms and meals for 150 

Nebraska was expected to walk 
all over the Wildcats because their 
offense ranked 10th in the nation 
while K-State ranked 1 06th. Garber 

won the starting quarterback posi- 
tion in the last game of his career at 
K-State. He lead the Cats to a 24- 
3 8 loss to the Big Eight Champions. 
Although the Cats lost, Garber 
threw 19 completions on 29 at- 
tempts for 246 yards. He also threw 
a pair of touchdowns and ran in a 
third one. Athletic Director Milt 
Richards said Garber "played the 
best game of his life." 

The Cats ended the season 5-6. 
Despite the team's losing season, 
many individuals were winners. 
Senior punter Sean Snyder was 
named first team All- American by 
the Associated Press and Kodak 
after averaging a school record of 
44.7 yards per punt. Snyder was the 
first player in K-State history to 
earn first team All-American from 
the AP. Snyder and Mendez were 
named first team all-Big Eight. Sec- 
ond team all-Big Eight included 
QuentinNeujahr, Gallon, Masters 
and Brooks Barta. Barta also be- 
came the first player in K-State 
history to lead the Cats in tackles 
for four consecutive seasons, finish- 
ing the season with a career-best 
142 tackles.

When Sports Illustrated visited the Wild- 
cat football team to shoot the feature they 
did on the team in the Aug. 3 1 issue, every- 
one was eager to get themselves into the 
magazine. As the photographers shot, the 
players would push their way to the front of 
the pack. 

Running back Leon Edwards won a solo 
shot in the magazine for messing up. He was 
late to practice and ended up running extra 
after practice. When he was cooling himself 
off with a splash of water, the photographers 
caught him. 

"Everyone had already left the field and 
he was washing himself off when the pho- 
tographers told him they needed one more 
picture. Everyone wished they would have 
been late," said Kitt Rawlings, junior 
cornerback. "I wish I would have been late."

tied for the conference win with 
Colorado and did all they could." 

Disappointment was expressed 
by Rovelto and other team mem- 
bers about the men's results at 


"We (the men's team) finished 
1 5th at Nationals, but as a team we 
felt we were capable of finishing in 
the top 10. We could have finished 
sixth or seventh if we would have 
run like we did at district," Rovelto 
said. "The men have a young, inex-

O'Neill said his performances 
surprised himself. 

"I came here not planning to be 
number one," O'Neill said. "I didn't 
know what to expect running at 
the Division I level." 

Members of the men's team said 
they were satisfied with the season, 
excluding national results. 

"Overall, I think it (the season) 
went really well," Becker said. "Na- 
tionals didn't come together as we 
wanted. None of the runners had 
even been to a national meet; there- 
fore, we had little experience. If j ust 
one guy runs a little better, it can 
take the team to a completely dif- 
ferent level. This is what we need." 

Becker said emotions were high 
at nationals because of Capriotti's 
resignation. To make the transi- 

tion smoother for the teams, Todd 
Trask accompanied the runners to 
the competition. 

"We have a lot of confidence in 
Todd," Becker said. "He's a branch 
of Capriotti. He made the adjust- 
ment easier for the team." 

The women's team finished first 
at the Wichita State Gold Classic 
with 15 points and at the Okla- 
homa State Cowboy Jamboree with 
25 points.The team captured sec-

Front runners in the two-mile 
event at Wichita included Staats

Colorado at the Big Eight Cross

men finished second. But it was the 

NCAA Region Five Cross Coun-

the teams' fate for qualifying for

"It has been a tradition at K-State that 
the guys strip everything except their run- 
ning flats and go running up and down 
Aggieville," said Mike Becker, junior in 
secondary education. "We feel like if a bunch 
of us guys can get together and do something 
this crazy, then there is no reason why we 

can't accomplish our goals at cross country 

Besides making themselves mentally 
tough, Becker said their nude run was fun and 
generated lots of reactions from the surprised 
onlookers who screamed and snapped photos 
of the buck-naked runners. 

"We tried to disguise ourselves by wearing 
rubber gloves and glasses, but we didn't fool 
anyone," Becker said. "We ran nude a second 
time before the Big Eight Tournament."

After six years as bead track and cross country- 
coach at K-State, John Capriotti leaves two 

nationally ranked teams for a job with Nike Inc. 

WHEN JOHN CAPRIOTTI came to K-State to serve as 
head coach for the track and cross country teams, only 1 7 ail- 
American awards had been won in five years. 

After his departure from K-State six years later, the teams 
had racked up 41 all- Americans, the women's cross country 
team had won the Big Eight Conference and both the men's 
and women's teams ranked in the nation's Top 20. 

"He (Capriotti ) is a guy who keeps me up all night because 
his teams are so good," said Gary Pepin, head track and field 
coach at the University of Nebraska. 

Capriotti resigned as K-State's head coach Nov. 1, 1992, 
to become a track and field promotional representative for 
Nike Inc. 

"This came along and I just couldn't pass it up," Capriotti 
said. "When I used to see Nike reps, I'd think, 'How did they 
get that job? I wish I could do that.' " 

Capriotti started his new job knowing he had left behind 
a successful program. 

"A lot of coaches leave when the program is down," 
Capriotti said. "I promised myself I'd never do that. I don't 
think I could have left K-State if the program wasn't so great." 

As aNike representative, Capriotti scouted talent at track 
meets all over the world. 

"One of my biggest jobs will be to try to figure out the top 
people who will go to the Olympics to represent Nike," he 
said. "It's a high-pressure job to try to pick the winners." 

Capriotti said travel would make up 50 percent of his job. 

"I'm a pretty high-energy person. I'm kind of a pain in the 
butt, so people like it when I go away and travel sometimes," 
he said. "It's like a breather to everyone. Ask the kids (team 
members) — I think they'll tell you I'm demanding, but fair." 

Marcus Wright, middle-distance runner, agreed. 

"He pushes us hard, but that's a positive instead of a 
negative," Wright said. "I think he's a reasonable coach. He 
just sees the potential in an individual and pushes for it." 

Senior middle-distance runner Paulette Staats said 
Capriotti was a good coach. 

"He expects a lot out of us. I don't think he pushes too 
hard, though. He knows what we need and helps us get 
there," Staats said. 

Capriotti said it wasn't easy for him to leave behind the 
nationally ranked program. 

"The kids we have on the team are great. I'm going to miss 
them a lot," Capriotti said. "If it wasn't for this job offer, I 
would have stayed here a long time. I love K-State, and I've 
worked hard to make this program strong. It (leaving) was a 
hard decision." 

Capriotti's departure was also difficult for the team. 

"Honestly, it (Capriotti's resignation) hurt me," Wright 
said. " I respect his decision — I don't like it, but I respect it." 

Cliff Rovelto, former track and field assistant coach, took 
over Capriotti's position as head coach. 

"I feel very confident and comfortable about that," 
Capriotti said. "Cliff Rovelto will carry it (the winning 
tradition) on, and we've got a lot of great athletes to help

Students spend extra time 

and own money in order to 

experience the thrill of 

victory as a Wildcat 


"tudents in club sports promoted 
K-State as they traveled across the 
country to participate in tourna- 
ments. Because club athletes lacked 
staff member coaches and a univer- 
sity-funded budget, the students or- 
ganized the teams themselves and 
paid for club expenses out of their 
own wallets. 

Although the 60 Lacrosse Club

"It was so exciting," said Lori 
Smith, senior in animal sciences 
and industry and the team's co- 
captain. "We even won with no

Athletes on the team paid $20

which was used to pay for tourna- 
ment and lodging fees.

University and Baylor are even better than some 
of the Big Eight teams." 

The K-State soccer team was also better than 
all others in the Big Eight. In spring 1992, they 
won the Big Eight Championship. 

The team's successes continued into the next 
fall as they finished the semester with 12 wins 
and only three losses. With such a good record, 
Carpani said it was frustrating not to be consid- 
ered a varsity athlete. 

"I would love to be able to be in a varsity sport 
before I leave the University," he said. "Even if 
I'm already gone by the time it happens, I still 
want it to happen." 

The coach for the women's rugby team said 
the sport wouldn't be recognized by the Univer- 
sity for several years. Despite this lack of recog- 
nition, Coach LaDonna Grenz, graduate stu- 
dent in laboratory medicine, said her team still 
practiced hard and had amazing tournament results. 

In the spring of 1992, the women's rugby 
team hosted the Tiny Tumbleweed Tournament, 
and the team captured first place. Later in the 
semester, the team also won a tournament in St. 
Louis, Mo. 

The team members' hard work paid off again 
the next fall. At both the Heart of America and 
Ozark tournaments, the team finished second 
out of 12 teams.

"We were really happy with our wins," Grenz 

lid. "I hope we do as well this spring." 

To pay for the numerous tournaments, the 25 
embers paid $25 dues each semester and had 
indraisers throughout the season. 

"We spent about $4,000 a season," Grenz said. 
We need the money to pay for travel expenses, 
:rseys and referees at our own tournaments. We 
so pay for our own food and gas when we travel." 

The men's volleyball team also paid for their 
wn food and gas when traveling to meets, but 
ley were lucky enough to receive some support 
om Newman Distributors, a local company. 

"They helped us out quite a bit by paying for 
)me of the traveling expenses," said Kenny 
iartin, fifth-year architecture student and team 
resident. "We also received money from the 

members. The dues were $50 a year." 

Because the 1992 season was the first year of 
the club's existence, the meets weren't as orga- 
nized as Martin wanted. The club joined the 
United State's Volleyball Association during 
the spring semester, but the next fall they de- 
cided to be independent. 

"We set up our own games with other schools 
that had teams," Martin said. "Almost all the 
schools in the Big Eight have teams, so it (men's 
volleyball) is getting more popular all the time." 

Popularity wasn't a concern for members of 
the K-State Rowing Association. The club's 
main concern was money. 

"Our equipment is expensive," said Janelle Esau, 
senior in journalism and mass communications. "A 
shell that holds eight people costs $18,000. Up- 
keep and maintenance are also expensive." 

To pay the expenses, rowers on the varsity 

team paid $50 semester dues, while novice 
and junior members paid $40 dues. Team 
members also paid a $ 1 monthly coaching fee. 

"We're trying to build up our coaching 
funds so we are able to pay our coaches a 
salary," Esau said. 

The team also needed funds to replace a 
roof on the ir boat house . The club leased the 
boat house and sunounding lands from the 
Army Corps of Engineers. To keep their 
lease, team members were required to put a 
$ 1 2 ,000 roof on the boat house before 1 995 . 

Because their dues were used for such large 
expenses, rowers had to pay for their own 
transportation, lodging and food on trips. 

Alhough being involved with a club 
sport meant sacrificing personal time and 
money, team members found the thrill of 
competition worthwhile.

The Cats were led on offense 
by junior guard Askia Jones, se- 
nior forward Vincent Jackson, 
sophomore guard Brian Henson, 
senior center Aaron Collier and 
j unior forward Deryl Cunningham, 
all of whom averaged double fig- 
ures in scoring. The Cats had 
their best start since the 1981- 

82 season at 10-2. 

Both Collier and Cunningham 
gained a reputation for their aggres- 
sive rebounding, earning them the 
nickname of AC/DC for their elec- 
tric performances. 

Cat fans soon discovered how 
good the team was when Kansas 
came to Manhattan 
holding the nation's 
top ranking. ESPN fea- 
tured the game on "Big

largest crowd in the 
history of Bramlage

the game.

the Cats didn't disap-

hit two three-pointers

showed why they were 
the best team in the

Nebraska. The Cats 
closed out their non-

Turning their full attention to 
the Big Eight Conference, the sec- 
ond-place Cats welcomed Okla-

Many people did mark it down,

voters recognized the Cats as the

Most athletes have pre-game rituals they 
go through, and the men's basketball team 
was no exception. From serious to funny, the 
team knew what they had to do to get ready. 

Vincent Jackson and Kenny McEntyre 
hugged before every game. 

"We hug cause we're close like that," 
Jackson said. "It gets us ready for the game." 

Aaron Collier also liked to focus on those 
close to him. 

"I think about my friends who couldn't be 
there, and my mama," Collier said. "It gives 
me something to play for." 

Collier and Ron Lucas helped get the 
team pumped up before the game by playing 

"We do a little thing about someone try- 
ing to steal something from me. We get the 
team rolling," Lucas said. "The team loves

302 ##/ Anthony Beane 

No one could elicit as much excitement jrom the 
crowd or pump the team up like junior newcomer 
Anthony Beane. 


IMAGINE YOURSELF THE STAR point guard for a 
rebounding Big Eight basketball team. Imagine being so 
admired by your teammates that they turned to you for 
guidance, even though you were a rookie on the squad. 
Imagine having a dedicated following of media members and 

Imagine being Anthony Beane. 

Beane, a junior transfer student from Three Rivers Com- 
munity College, exhibited leadership qualities on the court. 
Newspaper articles touted his positive attitude and athletic 
ability, qualities Head Coach Dana Altman wanted to instill 
in his players. Altman was the main reason Beane decided to 
play for K-State. 

"Coach Altman made a good impression on me and my 
parents," Beane said. "He said, 'Books first, then basketball.' 
I'm here to get an education first, but at the same time, 
basketball is important to me." 

Coaches and reporters credited Beane with inspiring the 
team's improved performances. In a January press confer- 
ence, Altman praised Beane for his affect on the other 

"Very honestly, he's the difference in this program from 
last year to this year," Altman said. 

Wildcat fans enjoyed watching Beane handle the ball, 
taunting and frustrating opponents with his sharp pivots and 
endless chatter on the floor. Tim Bullington, senior in animal 
sciences and industry, said he enjoyed the games more since 
Beane joined the lineup. 

"I think he is the one player who is changing the Cats for 
the better," Bullington said. "I'm glad he came to K-State." 

Beane said the feeling was mutual. 

"K-State has great fans, especially in the student section," 
he said. "They're always right up front (from) beginning to 

Team members admitted they relied on Beane. In the Jan. 
25 edition of the Wichita Eagle, Deryl Cunningham, senior 
forward, said Beane was a leader. 

"Anyone can step up and lead. But we all look to An- 
thony," Cunningham said. "He just shoots us one of those 
looks and we go for it." 

Beane said his glances were ones of encouragement. 

"We all make mistakes. When someone makes a mistake, 
they need a little encouragement," Beane said. "I might 
nudge them a little and give them a look, but it's really more 
than that. It's encouragement." 

His reassuring looks were only one of the ways Beane 
displayed his leadership. 

"You can't be a leader by telling people what to do and not 
do it yourself," Beane said. "When they see me giving 110 
percent in practice, then they will. You've got to lead by 

Being a successful player in the Big Eight Conference was 
a big task, and Beane set his priorities at the beginning of the 
season. For him, hard work was its own reward. 

"While winning is important at this level, at the same 
time you've got to play your hardest and have fun," Beane 
said. "I've always been told if you play hard, good things will

With a new offense from the 'wizard' the lady cats 
improve on last season's record but end with the 
worst women's conference record in k-state history 


ollowing in the footsteps left by 
Dorothy's ruby-red slippers, Lady 
Cat head coach Susan Yo w went in 
search of the "wizard" to help her 
team. Looking to improve on last 
season's 5-23 record, she sought the 
advice of former UCLA head coach 
John Wooden. 

Known as the 
for leading the Bruins 
to 1 NCAA national 
titles, Wooden gave 
Yow advice on the 
high-post offense, 
which was the new of- 
fense the Lady Cats 
adopted to change 
their fortunes. 

To go along with 
their new offense, the 
Lady Cats added new 
uniforms, new players 
and a new attitude to 
improve on last year's 
five wins. 

"I think as we open 
our season, it is impor- 
tant for this team to get 
some wins under its 
belt," Coach Yow said. 

After five games, 
the Lady Cats broke 
the belt as they won all 
five, matching last 
season's total wins. 

Led by seniors Kelly 
Moylan, Leah Honey- 
cutt and sophomore 
Shanele Stires, a jun- 
ior college transfer, the 
Lady Cats had impres- 
sive wins over teams including 
Northern Iowa, Lafayette and Oral 
Roberts. Not since the 1 983-84 sea- 
son had the Lady Cats gotten off to 
such a good start. 

The Lady Cats' winning streak 
was brought to a halt when Illinois-

Chicago edged the Lady Cats by 
one point for a 6 1 -60 victory. Then 
the team suffered their second 
straight defeat as Minnesota left 
Bramlage Coliseum with a 58-44 win. 
The Lady Cats then embarked 
on their first road trip of the season 
as they traveled to Wilmington,

season as Lady Cat head coach. She coached the team to a 10-

N.C., for the Holiday Inn Basket- 
ball Beach Blast '93. The tourna- 
ment turned out to be a big blast for 
the Lady Cats as they claimed vic- 
tories over New Hampshire and 
UNC-Wilmington. Stires was 
named the tournament's Most 

Valuable Player and was joined on 
the all-tournament team by Moylan 
and Honeycutt. 

Picked to finish last in the Big 
Eight in a preseason poll by league 
coaches, the Lady Cats began con- 
ference play against the nationally 
ranked Colorado Buffaloes. The 
Lady Cats fell to the 
Buffaloes 33-61. They 
then were beaten in 
M issouri by the Tigers. 
Returning home, 
the Lady Cats had to 
deal with the loss of 
two key bench play- 
ers, sophomore for- 
wards Pam Stoltz and 
Joey Ward. 

On Jan. 12, Stoltz an- 
nounced she was leaving 
the team and returning 
to her home in Minne- 
sota because she hadn't 
adjusted to the demands 
placed on a collegiate 
basketball player. 

"It is extremely 
hard when a player 
leaves your program, 
especially one that has 
contributed early in a 
big way," Yow said. 

Stoltz left the team 
averaging 2.2 points 
and 3.4 rebounds per 
game. The next day, 
Ward tore the ante- 
rior cruciate ligament 
in her left knee and 
was sidelined for the 
Despite the loss of two players, 
the Lady Cats were still confident 
they would beat Iowa State, who

season win. Although Moylanhad 18

The Lady Cat basketball team recruited 
experienced players through an ad in the 
Collegian. However, the gender of the prac- 
tice players they were looking for was male. 

The need for recruits came about when 
one player quit and one was injured, leaving 
the team nine strong — not enough women 
to scrimmage against one another. 

Players recognized the benefits of prac- 
ticing against men who were sometimes 
quicker and played more roughly. 

"They're (males) more aggressive," Kelly 
Moylan said. "The type of defensive pressure 
they put on us helps when we go up against 
our opponents — it helps our offense." 

Leah Honeycutt agreed. 

"It (playing against the men) works real 
well," Honeycutt said. "Because the guys are 
quicker and jump higher, it causes us to step 
up our own playing."

enough as the Cyclones upset the Lady 
Cats 67-61 for their third straight loss. 

The Lady Cats then lost four 
more games, including a non-con- 
ference loss to Wichita State. The 
Shockers were led by sophomore 
Ann Hollingsworth, who dumped 
in 20 points and grabbed 1 1 rebounds. 

With the absence of Stoltz and 
Ward, the Lady Cats were down to 
nine players. Through an adver- 
tisement in the Collegian, the 
team's coaching staff recruited male 
players for scrimmaging. 

The Lady Cats finally broke their 
seven-game losing streak when they 
hosted Quincy . Led by Honeycutt's 
1 7 points and Stires' 1 5 points, they 
improved to an 8-10 record. 

When KU's players came to 
town, the team was still in search of 
their first conference win since Jan. 
23, 1992. After trailing by 10 at 
intermission, Stires contributed 1 1 
points and the Lady Cats took the 
lead, 39-38. But they were unable 
to hold on and fell 58-5 1. 

The Lady Cats suffered a disap- 
pointing 67-51 defeat to Missouri. 

"We're very, very disappointed, ex- 
tremely dissappointed — it's the 
most dissappointed the team's been 
all season," Yow said. 

Colorado was next in line as 
they came to Bramlage ranked 
fourth in the nation, but they al- 
most didn't leave that way. Colo- 
rado called timeout with 2:09 left 
and the score tied at 5 1 . The Lady 
Cats turned the ball over three 
straight times as they failed to score 
the rest of the game, losing 61-51. 

After a loss to Nebraska, the 
Lady Cats' fortune finally changed 
when they traveled to Iowa State. 
The Lady Cats snapped a 21 -game 
Big Eight losing streak as Stires and 
Moylan both contributed 17points. 

The Lady Cats lost the next two 
games, as seniors Moylan and 
Honeycutt finished out their col- 
lege basketball careers at Bramlage. 
Moylan went out blazing as she hit 
six three-pointers in a losing effort 
against Oklahoma. 

In the last non-conference game of 
the season, the team traveled to Chi- 
cago where they defeated Loyola, 63- 
52. They closed out the regular season 
with a 75-43 loss to KU.

Practicing regularly, other teams played to win.

Students also officiated the competitions. 

"We hire students to supervise and run the programs, as 
/ell as actually go onto the courts or fields and officiate," 

Robel said. "A lot of students enjoy this and many go on to 
be officials for the city's recreational program." 

Working as officials provided the officiating students a 
deeper understanding of the games, Martini said. 

"Officiating was a humbling experience for everybody," 
he said. "It had a direct effect on the level of competitiveness 
of play. The more competitive a program, the more impor- 
tant the officials are." 

Students were competitive so officials held important roles. 

"I believe the students at K-State expect quality officiated 
contests. We try to provide that," he said. "I don't think 
anybody can ever be satisfied completely with the officiating, 
regardless what level of play it is." 

Even students who played just to have fun benefited. 

"I would definitely encourage everyone to get involved in 
intramurals," Robel said. "It is a great way to stay active in 
sports, as well as have the opportunity to meet others. 
Intramural competitions provide students the opportunity to 
interact socially while carrying on their athletic skills."

Junior Francis O'Neill finished

"I was happy with my perfor-

of the team and the serious training 
helped me to achieve some of my 
best performances." 

O'Neill said he enjoyed the 800- 
meter run because the event was 
over before the pain started. He ran 
the mile because he was a national 
contender in the event. 

Other winning performances at 
the Big Eight Meet came from se-

second in the high jump, fourth in 
the pentathlon and eighth in the

Although indoor and outdoor track com-

"The difference is that outdoor track is 
more competitive because athletes have to 
run faster, be in better shape and are very 
serious," said Jared Storm, senior. "Outdoor 
track is also more prestigious." 

However, Storm said the indoor track 
season prepared the runners for spring com- 

"I like indoor track better because I do 
better. But, outdoor track is just as great 
since we travel further and run against more 
competitive athletes," he said. 

Storm liked it better because weather 
conditions weren't a concern and the com- 
petition was easier. However, he also en- 
joyed outdoor competition because of the 

"The competition is a lot harder for out- 
door track but travel is good. Indoor running 
is more physical because the track is smaller 
so the runners are closer physically," he said. 
"Personally, I have a better record for indoor

both indoor and outdoor track," he said.

"I had never competed in the 
U.S. before this season," Margalit 
said. "Now, to compete on this 
scale is great." 

In addition to improving per- 
sonally, Margalit said the whole 
team had the potential to be better. 

"We have got mostly young guys 
right now, but we're going to be 
better in the next couple of years," 
he said. 

Although his ankle injury kept 
him from achieving even greater 
heights, Margalit was one of only 
three K-State high jumpers who 
did well throughout the season. 
Gaskins and freshman Ed

Providing energetic and indepth reports of the K- 
State Wildcats has become the life and the love of 
sports announcer Mitch Holthaus. 



The voice of Mitch Holthaus rated K-State athletics with 
the term "big." With this one word, Holthaus also built his 
career as the Voice of the Wildcats. 

Holthaus' repetition of the word "big" showed the success 
of the Wildcats' performance. When the team made a good 
play, Holthaus repeated "big" six times. On outstanding 
plays, the word was said 10 times for maximum emphasis. 

Holthaus worked for the Wildcat network for 1 years and 
served as the Voice of the Wildcats for nine. Committed to 
K-State as an alumnus, Holthaus' love for the University 
began when he was young. 

"I had a love affair with K-State since third grade when I 
attended my first game in Memorial Stadium," Holthaus said. 
"My dream was to be the Voice of the Wildcats." 

Holthaus decided to chase this dream because his two 
other goals — to be the president of the United States or a K- 
State football player — made him realize his limitations. 
Although he was accepted by three law schools, Holthaus 
chose to pursue his career with K-State. 

Holthaus, who has a degree in radio-television, stressed 
the importance of being prepared for radio broadcasts. 

"My friends and foes would agree I am well prepared. I 
keep files on opponents in learning their trends and statis- 
tics," he said. "It (broadcasting) challenges me to be prepared 
in finding one thing that no one else knows to make my 
broadcast interesting and entertaining." 

However, he emphasized the journalistic responsibility he 
had to remain objective. 

"Although my voice gets excited when K-State does 
something good, I remain objective and even compliment 
the opponent," Holthaus said. 

As Voice of the Wildcats, Holthaus established his radio 
persona and was a familiar voice to the Manhattan area. 

"It's a responsibility to be well-known. I'm fortunate to 
have the opportunity. I'll approach it with the proper attitude 
of humility and gratefulnes," Holthaus said. "Sure, I get a buzz 
from being well-known, but there is a conduct of responsibil- 
ity I maintain because I represent K-State." 

Since joining K-State, Holthaus had announced more 
than 700 games and never missed one because of an illness. 
He missed a football game in 1984, but only because he was 
announcing basketball in Hawaii. He also missed a 1992 
basketball game because he was in Tokyo broadcasting 

Holthaus' popularity was similar to the fame of Dev 
Nelson, former Voice of the Wildcats who diedjan. 16, 1993. 

"Dev Nelson was the Voice of Wildcats emeritus, and he 
will hold that as long as K-State is an institution," Holthaus 
said. "He will be the standard to what all of us will be 

Although Holthaus received offers from the Chicago 
Cubs and Kansas City Royals, he remained at K-State. 

"If there's an opportunity at a higher level, I would look at 
it. But, if this is all I do, I'll be satisfied," Holthaus said. "My 
ideal situation would be ( to announce) at a national level but 
still broadcast for K-State."

Maintaining good grades, 
completing house duties 
and participating in extracur- 
ricular activites kept residents 
of scholarship houses busy. 

Each of the scholarship houses 
stressed academics. To live in 
the houses, residents needed to 
maintain a certain grade point 
average. The minimum grade 
point averages were 2.7 for Smith 
Scholarship House, 2.5 for Al- 
pha of Clovia and 3.0 for 
Smurthwaite House. 

Residents of scholarship houses 
were also required to do house- 
work. This included kitchen duty 
every other weekend and phone 
duty for 10 hours each semester. 
Through working together, resi- 
dents formed friendships. 

"Living here is more like a 
family than a dorm would be. I 
like the security of this environ- 
ment," said Suzanne Edson, fresh- 

man in business administration 
and Smurthwaite resident. "You 
really get to know everyone and 
their friends. This begins a chain, 
so you meet people of all inter- 

Incoming freshmen at 
Smurthwaite were paired up with 
upperclassmen who became "big 

"Similar to sororities having 
moms, we have big sisters," Edson 
said. "I get along well with my 
big sis. She was very helpful, 
especially the first few weeks of 

The scholarship houses also 
sponsored social events. 

"We have two dances each 
year: the barn dance in October 
and the Crystal Ball in the spring," 
said Grace Kriley, sophomore in 
dietetics. "There are events for 
holidays, and we try to do one 
activity a month."

By Trina Holmes 

Making its 100th jaunt to 
the dorm, the pizza delivery 
truck stopped in front of the 
residence hall. Unzipping the 
plastic shield that kept the pizza 
warm, the driver delivered the 
food to a hungry student. This 
scene was a common occurrence 
at residence halls. 

Chris (not his real name), a 
Pizza Shuttle driver, said 3 5 percent 
of the restaurant's pizza deliveries 
went to residence halls. He said 
the eight delivery drivers each 
made about 14 stops to the halls 
every night. 

Reasons for ordering out varied. 
Bobby Prichard, freshman in pre- 
veterinary medicine, said the 
amount of food offered in the 
dining centers wasn't enough to 
curb his appetite. He said the 
hours the food lines were open 
made a difference in his eating 

"I order out about three times 
a week and spend an extra $15," 
Prichard said. "It seems like Derby 

(Food Center) isn't open long 
enough, so I order food in the 

However, some students said 
they spent too much money on 
meals that were delivered and 
had to face some angry parents. 

"I order out three or four times 
a week and spend $20-30," said 
Nancy Knostman, freshman in 
business administration. "My 
parents get mad, but I have a job 
and there's not much they can 
do about it." 

Not all students spent money 
on fast food. Some ate the dining 
center meals and only ordered 
out when they could not get to 
the centers and when the food 
lines were closed. 

"I order out once a week on 
Sunday nights because food is 
not served in the dining centers," 
said Brian Welch, freshman in 
engineering. "I eat there the rest 
of the time because I paid for it, 
and I don't want to spend the 
extra money."

Students leery about walking 
alone on campus late at night 
used the Haymaker Hall and Ford 
Hall escort service. In October, 
residents of the two halls worked 
together to provide the new campus 

"We combined the two buildings 
in an effort to make the women 
feel more comfortable about using 
the service," said Jennifer Graves, 
freshman in pre-law and Ford 
Hall escort service chairperson. 
"Having two people escorting 

I alleviates any questionsorproblems 

ithat may arise." 

Ming Kirkpatrick, freshman 

Jin interior design, served as an 

| escort from Ford. She said 
combining the service made women 
more likely to use it. 

"There were some problems 
with guys hitting on the girls 
they were escorting," Kirkpatrick 
fsaid. "Now there are two escorts 
for the students — one guy and 
one girl. This takes some of the 
uneasiness off the woman who is 
using the service." 

Kirkpatrick said the escorts 
walked with students to campus 
or the parking lots. 

"Students used it (the service) 
to go to late night classes or to 
the library. We walk them to 
and from their destination if they 
need it," Kirkpatrick said. 
"Sometimes we took them to 
their cars in the (parking) lots." 

The service also made sure 
the escorts returned safely from 
their trips. 

"Escorts were required to check 
in and out at their front desks. It 
was an added safety feature to 
make sure they returned OK," 
Graves said. "We also have escorts 
available for people who like to 
jog at night." 

The service was available 24 
hours a day. 

"We get calls at any time of 
the day or night. When a Ford 
escort gets a call, she then calls 
one of the guys from Haymaker 
to meet in the lobby," Graves 
said. "He then accompanies us 
to the person's destination."

332 /// Social Activities 

Residence halls offer 

more than room and hoard 

By Kim Mosier 

esidence halls not only 
gave students a place to 
ive, but also provided them a 
chance to meet others through so- 
cial activities. 

"The planning process usually 
begins with myself," said Sara 
<Cearns, junior in English and 
utnam Hall social chairperson. "I 
:>ring the idea up in our HGB ( Hall 
joverning Board) meetings, and 
t's a group process from there. Of- 
:en the ideas and themes come 
rom a nearby holiday." 

Themes for parties were often 
cept the same each year. 

"Pimp and Prostitute is an an- 
lual party for us," said Michele 
Adams, sophomore in leisure stud- 
es and Moore Hall social chairper- 
son. "This year it was not nearly as 
successful . There was a big contro- 
/ersy about the name in an HGB 
meeting. I feel this whole contro- 
/ersy took a toll on attendance." 

Many of the events served to 
welcome students back to school. 

"At the beginning of the semes- 

ter we had Wacky Olympics and a 
picnic," said Angie Kimminau, 
sophomore in pre-veterinary medi- 
cine and Goodnow Hall social 
chairperson. "They were fun and 
everyone could act crazy." 

Othersocial activities sponsored 
by the residence halls included skat- 
ing, informative programs, semi- 
formals and holiday celebrations. 

"The social activities were 
planned to give people something 
to do," said Brenda Tipton, sopho- 
more in social work and Ford Hall 
social chairperson. "You learn the 
dorms are a place to meet people 
and have fun." 

Barn parties were the most popular. 

"The barn party we had was 
great," Tipton said. "Even though 
it was a 1 5-mile drive, many people 
were there. I enjoyed seeing every- 
one have a good time, meeting 
people and coupling up." 

Lower party attendence did not 
discourage social committees. 

"Not too many of the parties or 
dances this year have been success- 

ful," Adams said. "I feel like our 
semi-formal should be a success 
because we are trying to make it a 
big deal." 

Some residence halls planned 
activities to relieve students' stress. 

"An idea from a residence hall 
convention was the finals release," 
Kearns said. "It would include play 
dough and finger painting." 

Besides being fun, some activi- 
ties raised money for charity. 

"For the Flint Hills Breadbasket 
food drive, we had people put in j ail 
for 50 cents or a can of food," said 
Donna Duryee, sophomore in ap- 
parel and textile marketing and 
West Hall social chairperson. 

The money and food items col- 
lected benefited the community. 

"We're not just here to serve 
and help the college, but to serve 
the community of Manhattan as 
well," said Holly Pomeroy, sopho- 
more in elementary education and 
Goodnow Hall activities chairper- 
son. "We've done this through the 
food drive." 

"Pimp and Prostitute is 
an annual party for us . 
This year it was not 
nearly as successful. 
There was a big contro- 
versy about the name in 
an HGB meeting. I feel 
this whole controversy 
took a toll on attendance."

Muddy bodies were everywhere 
as people slipped and fell 
in the pool of muck at the first 
Marlatt Hall Mud Volleyball 
Tournament Sept. 26. The 
fundraiser was sponsored by Marlatt 
Hall Governing Board. 

"We didn't come up with the 
idea until we came back to school 
at the beginning of the semester," 
said Bruce Zook, j unior in chemical 
engineering and tournament 
organizer. "Since greeks have their 
philanthropies, we wanted to 
donate money to an organization. 
We ended up donating $75 to 
the Flint Hills Breadbasket." 

Zook said organizing the 
tournament turned out to be more 
work than he expected. Since it 
was mud volleyball, a pit needed 
to be dug. However, dirt from 
the pit didn't turn into mud that 
could be used in the tournament. 

"We ended up buying dirt. 
The dirt in the pit was clay, and 
it didn't make for good mud," Zook 
said. "It was virtually a swimming 

pool. We spent a day and a half 
looking for dirt to fill the hole." 

The tournament, open to the 
community, had a $20 entry fee 
for each of the 29 participating 
teams. Cash prizes were given 
for first through fourth place, 
with $50 as the grand prize. 

Although organizers advertised 
the event, it lacked the amount 
of teams needed to play. 

"We had 16 teams with less 
than a week to go," Zook said. 
"We had to extend the entry 
deadline, and we got 13 more 
teams the next week." 

Although a lot of his time 
was spent organizing the 
tournament, Zook said the outcome 
made it worthwhile. 

"We invited West Hall HGB 
(Hall Governing Board) to play 
before the tournament, and it 
ended up being a mud fight," 
Zook said. "I wouldn't organize 
it (the tournament) again, but I 
would love to help. It was a great

Hired to help keep the residence 
halls running smoothly, front 
desk workers gave out information, 
advice and phone numbers to 
hall members and non-members. 

Jenny Watson, sophomoje in 
business administration and 
Goodnow Hall desk worker, said 
students came to the front desk 
for many reasons. 

"They can call and get phone 
numbers from us. We also check 
out cooking and sporting- 
equipment, tools and study rooms," 
Watson said. 

Desk workers also performed 
various odd jobs for the residence 

"Sometimes we entered hall 
rosters into the log book," she 
said. "We also took calls from 
people wanting to know more 
about the hall." 

Angie Baker, sophomore in 
pre-nursing, worked at the Strong 
Complex's front desk. 

"I've seen many people come 

in after a night in Aggieville," 
she said. "Sometimes they are so 
drunk, they have trouble getting 
through the door. They're loud, 
but not rude or belligerent." 

The workers could fit their 
jobs around their schedules. 

"The longer you have worked, 
the better your hours will be," 
Watson said. "Students who have 
been here the longest get seniority 
over the others." 

Access to the residence halls 
was closely monitored, since most 
halls had the valadine system. 
The system was turned on at 
night and kept out people who 
didn't have an access card. 

"We didn't have too many 
problems with people sneaking 
in who didn't belong," said Kristel 
Jackson, senior in interior design 
and Moore front desk worker. 
"Sometimes people would come 
in with groups of residents. I 
could usually tell if they didn't

Workers essential for smooth 

operation of dining service 

By Shannon Yust 

ome students didn't just 
eat at campus dining cen- 
ters. Over 400 students were em- 
ployed by Housing and Dining Ser- 
vices to work as line servers, dish- 
washers, cooks and supervisors. 

"It (my job) is a big commit- 
ment, but worth it," said Christine 
Bagby, freshman in secondary edu- 
cation and Derby Food Center 
worker. "It's my only source of in- 

Bagby enjoyed working in 
Derby's A-line, which only served 
student athletes. 

"I have worked on other lines, 
but I would much rather work on 
A-line. They (the athletes) respect 
me more than the average person 
because I know them personally," 
Bagby said. "I now have 99 personal 
bodyguards around campus." 

Other workers may not have 
had bodyguards, but they did spend 
20-30 hours per week watching over 

other student employees. 

"We work with student employ- 
ees and make sure positions are 
filled for breakfast, lunch and din- 
ner. We also deal with customer 
complaints," said Gary Manly, se- 
nior in sociology and student super- 
visor at Kramer Food Center. "We 
are the go between for the civil 
service workers and our boss." 

Leigh Ann Cunningham, jun- 
ior in family life and human devel- 
opment, said her job at Derby was 

"I live at Ford, and I don't have 
to drive or walk anywhere," 
Cunningham said. "I like my hours. 
They work with me. My boss has 
even been known to fill in for me if 
I cannot find a substitute." 

But a job as a cafeteria worker 
was not always easy. Manly said his 
job was more difficult than working 
as a waiter at a restaurant because 
the cafeteria served more people. 

"As a waiter, you provide ser- 
vices for a few people at a time, 
whereas you deal with 1 ,500 people 
at Derby," Manly said. "We are 
busting our butts for these people. 
Sometimes we do not fix the food as 
we intended, but I want people to 
appreciate what we do." 

Student supervisors prepared 
line workers for students' complaints 
about the food. 

"We try to make recommenda- 
tions. If our employees don't know 
what something tastes like, then 
we have them try it," Cunningham 
said. "If they stand there and rec- 
ommend Burger King, then they 
are pulled aside and asked not to 
criticize the food." 

Despite the complaints, 
Cunningham enjoyed his job. 

"The money's good, and the 
people are friendly," Cunningham 
said. "Why would I want to go 
anywhere else?" 

"We are busting our 
butts for these people . 
Sometimes we do not fix 
the food as we intended, 
but 1 want people to 
appreciate what we do."

By Shannon Yust 

Suitcases were dragged from 
underneath beds, clothes were 
packed, windows were closed and 
refrigerated food was thrown away 
as students prepared to leave the 
residence halls for the holidays. 
But not all students headed home. 

"I was asked by several people 
to go home with them," said 
Catherine Joyce, freshman in 
environmental design and Ford 
Hall resident. '"Well, ifyoudon't 
have anywhere to go, come home 
with me,' they would say. I decided 
to go home with a friend who 
lives in Kansas City, so I didn't 
have to stay in Manhattan." 

Because her hometown was 
in Queenstown, Md., Joyce was 
unable to travel home for 
Thanksgiving due to the distance. 
She said her parents took a vacation 
without her. 

"I called home to tell my parents 
where I was going to be. They 
went to New York City over the 
holidays," Joyce said. "They were 
parade . I ' ve been bugging my parents 
for years to go to New York City, 

and since I wasn't home, I felt 
left out. They said, 'Well, look 
for us on TV if you can.' " 

Rob Tope, freshmen in pre- 
veterinary medicine and Haymaker 
Hall resident, worked in Manhattan 
during Thanksgiving break. Besides 
missing out on a Thanksgiving 
celebration, he also had his birthday 
during break. 

"Wheneveryone left, itfeltweird," 
Tope said. "It was quiet because I was 
the last one to leave." 

Since the residence halls closed 
over the holidays, Tope moved 
out of his dorm room and into a 
friend's apartment. 

"I didn't like having to move 
out of the dorm. The dorm felt 
like home," Tope said. "It had 
meaning, and moving out felt 
like I was moving away." 

Sharmeen Irani, freshman in 
food science and industry, was 
unable to return to her home in 
Bombay, India. She said she didn't 
mind staying in Manhattan during 
the holidays. 

"It (staying in Manhattan) 
wasn't so bad. America is a new 

place for me — a totally different 
culture," Irani said. "There are 
so many exciting things that we 
didn't have back home." 

With her home more than 
8,000 miles away, Irani said there 
was no way she had enough time 
to get there. 

"By the time I would have 
gotten there, I'd say, 'Hi, mom.' 
Then, I'd have to get back on 
the plane for school,' " she said. 

But Irani didn't spend her break 
alone. She was invited to her 
roommate's house in Overland 
Park, where she participated in 
the American holiday for the 
first time. 

Although she was occasionally 
homesick, Irani traveled to Dallas, 
Texas, to stay with her relatives 
during winter break. 

"I wouldn't mind staying here 
(the United States) again over | 
the holidays as long as I am going 
around visiting America," Irani 
said. "My parents wanted me to 
come home for Christmas, but 
no way am I going back. I'm 
having too much fun."

StafYassistant. Although it didn't 
sound like a tough job, students 
who filled the position faced 
numerous challenges. They had 
more to do than simply locking 
the doors to the residence halls 
at night and keeping the residents 
on their floor under control. 

Wendy Vincent, senior in 
speech, was a staff member in 
Ford Hall for three semesters. 
She became interested in the 
job after living in Ford. 

"I wanted to be in a leadership 
position," Vincent said. "By being 
a staff assistant, I felt I could 
help freshmen adjust to college 
life and to K-State." 

Matt Baker, senior in psychology 
and staff assistant in Haymaker 
Hall, also liked his job because it 
brought him in contact with people. 

"It's a good job because you 
get to work with people," Baker 
said. "The benefits of having your 
room and board paid is also nice, 
but the main emphasis is on people." 

The staff assistants within the 

residence halls fulfilled many roles 
such as counselor, mediator, 
disciplinarian, campus reference, 
maintenance person and friend. 
Despite the job training they 
received, staff assistants faced 
situations they hadn't anticipated. 

"It seems funny now, but at 
the time it really wasn't," Baker 
said, referring to an unexpected 
crisis. "We had a toilet that wouldn't 
quit running, so I turned the 
knob to shut off the pipe. Instead 
of the water shutting off, suddenly 
I had 30 pounds of water pressure 
coming out of the toilet. Before 
we finally got the water shut off, 
the toilet had flooded five rooms 
and leaked through to the laundry 
room. Other than that, I haven't 
had any major crisises." 

Besides maintenance problems, 
staff assistants often dealt with 
crisises involving their residents, 
including the death of family or 
friends, rape, depression and suicide. 

"I didn't ever expect to have 
to deal with two suicide attempts. 

It's something you hear about, 
but it's not something you think 
you'll end up handling," Vincent 
said. "Working with these 
individuals afterwards is a touchy 
situation because you never know 
how they are going to react to 
everything that has happened. 
On top of that, I have to keep 
the floor (members) together and 
in harmony." 

All students who applied to 
become a staff assistant had to 
take the Guidance for the 
Paraprofessional class, have lived 
in the residence hall for at least 
two semesters and have a minimum 
grade point average of 2.25. 

"They prepare you for so much 
that you think there isn't anything 
they could have missed in the 
class," said Carey Moss, senior 
in fisheries and wildlife biology 
and Moore staff assistant. "However, 
they don't teach you about feelings. 
They teach you how to confront 
people, but they don't tell you 
how that person will react."

The rain didn't keep the 
Flint Hills Breadbasket from 
soaking up $1,000 worth of 
donations from the men of Acacia. 

Although the second day of 
Acacia's Kickball Classic was called 
off due to a late September shower, 
the final games were played a 
month later. 

Ten men's teams and 12 
women's teams participated in 
the double elimination tournament 
at the Chester E. Peters Recreation 
Complex. The Alpha Tau Omegas 
and the Delta Delta Deltas won 
the third annual event with the 
Phi Gamma Deltas and Kappa 
Alpha Thetas placing second. 

Manhattan's homeless benefited 
from the tournament. Money raised 
from T-shirt sales and donations 
helped fund the Flint Hills 
Breadbasket's Thanksgiving and 
Christmas food drives. 

Brian Day, junior in accounting 
and Acacia philanthropy chairman, 
said members of Acacia enjoyed 
sponsoring the kickball tournament 

because it was a unique event. 

The fraternity didn't have their 
own team in the tournament, 
but they participated by coaching 
and officiating other teams. 

"Everyone really got into 
coaching the teams," said Jason 
Haremza, freshman in chemical 
science. "We were all competitive 
— but it was all in fun. It was a 
very worthwhile cause." 

Three men were in charge of 
coaching each sorority, and one 
member coached each men's team. 
Matthew Ohm, freshmen in 
elementary education, organized 
a practice for the Gamma Phi 
team he coached. 

"We kicked balls around during 
the practice," said Ohm. "Sur- 
prisingly, the women were a lot 
more competitive than the men." 

The Acacias also tried to have 
at least two officials at each game. 

"We had a great time," Haremza 
said. "We joked around a lot 
over the calls and yelled in each 
other's faces."

Alpha Chi Omega 


Edna Rush became a mem- 
ber of Alpha Chi Omega 
without ever going through rush. 
She was initiated into the sorority 
1 1 years after she took the position 
of housemom. 

"The national president of 
Alpha Chi visited the K-State 
chapter last November," said Barb 
Shideler, senior in psychology. 
"She thought Rush should be 
initiated because ofher hard work." 

Despite everything Rush con- 
tributed to Alpha Chi, she never 
expected to become a member. 

"It was a shock when I re- 
ceived a letter from the Alpha 
Chi nationals announcing my 
initiation. I had no more than 
read it when the chapter adviser 
called and asked if I had gotten 
any mail," Rush said. "It was a 
proud day." 

Alpha Chi members were glad 
Rush was initiated. 

"Initiating her is our way of 
saying thank you for all she has 
done for us," said Carrie McVay, 

junior in pre-law. 

As a full member, Rush was 
allowed to wear an active pin, 
attend chapter meetings and share 
all of the rights and privileges of 
an active member. Rush did not 
attend chapter meetings regularly 
because she didn't want to interfere. 

"I don't sit in on them because 
I want to keep the relationship 
the same," Rush said. "I'm afraid 
the girls may not express some of 
their opinions if I was there. I do 
want to sit in a night or two 
during rush to see how it works. 

Despite her involvement with 
the sorority, Rush also managed 
to be involved in the community. 
She was active in the senior citizens' 
center and was recognized as one 
of the top 10 citizens of Manhattan 
in 1991. She was also on the 
house corporation board, made 
up of Alpha Chi alumnae who 
handle house maintenance. 

"I feel more a part of things 
now," Rush said. "It's as if two 
halves were made a whole."

Playboys, a soccer tournament 
and Twister games helped 
the Alpha Chi Omega sorority 
raise money for their philanthropies. 

They started off the year by 
selling T-shirts with the Delta 
Upsilon fraternity at the Ed 
Chartrand Memorial Soccer 
Tournament Oct. 24-25. 

"The tournament is held as a 
forum of competition for the Big 
Eight soccer teams and has been 
played since 1980," said Angela 
Schwerdtfeger, junior in journal ism 
and mass communications. 

"1992 was the first year for 
the partnership of the tournament 
and the Heart of America chapter 
of Cystic Fibrosis," Schwerdtfeger 

The tournament was brought 
back to Manhattan after it took 
place for several years in Kansas 
City, Mo. 

"We're looking forward to 
making the soccer tournament 
an annual tournament with the 
DUs," Schwerdtfeger said. 

The Alpha Chis also helped 
the Theta Xis develop their new 
philanthropy, Twister Mania. The 
event took place March 7. The 
proceeds were donated to Big 
Brothers/ Big Sisters of Manhattan. 

Another Alpha Chi philan- 
thropy was Greek Playboy. In 
the fall of 1 990, the sorority raised 
$6,354 forCystic Fibrosis, making 
it the largest fundraiser among 
K-State sororities. 

"We were unable to do it last 
year, but we're very excited to 
bring it back," Schwerdtfeger said. 
"We plan on having it every 
year now." 

The event included fraternity 
men modeling two outfits, having 
an interview and posing for a 
poster. The fundraiser took place 
April 16 at the Wareham Hotel. 

"I think it's so successful because 
it involves everybody. The 
fraternities participated by 
modeling, and the sorority members 
were judges," said Jen Arnold, 
senior in early childhood education.

Alpha Delta Pi sorority 
members used water guns, 
posters, donuts and orange juice 
to get teams fired up to partici- 
pate in their philanthropy, Soft- 
ball Classic, on Sept. 13. 

The games started at 8 a.m. 
and lasted until the final match 
was completed at 9 p.m. The 
Kites team triumphed over Mental 
Errors, but the Ronald McDonald 
House in Topeka was the real 

More than $3,400 was given 
to the charity, which relied on 
donations to help families with 
terminally ill children pay for 
their stay at the house. 

"The Softball Classic was a 
neat way to get women involved 
and a fun way for all to participate," 
said Jennifer Smith, junior in 
English. "It was a good way for 
the players to participate in one 
of their favorite past times and 
raise money in the process." 

Besides money, the women 
also donated their time to make 

repairs on the Topeka house. 

"Our philanthropy is especially 
good for a sorority because a couple 
of times each year we go to the 
Ronald McDonald House in 
Topeka to paint and clean it," 
said Mindy Rawdon, sophomore 
in elementary education. "We 
also donate toys, silverware and 
appliances. It's a great opportunity 
to do more than something here. 
We got to see what goes on and 
help out." 

The ADPis agreed their 
philanthropy was worthwhile. One 
member who was supportive of 
the philanthropy also understood 
the need for Ronald McDonald 

"It was really great knowing 
our philanthropy helped the 
Ronald McDonald House," said 
Renelle Everett, freshman in 
business administration. "When 
my cousin broke his neck, my 
aunt and uncle and their family 
stayed there. They talked highly 
about it."

allowing students to let off steam 
before school started. Participants 
competed in a variety of events, 
including tug of war, an inner 
tube race, a bucket brigade and 
volleyball tournament. New events 
included an obstacle course, canoe 
relay and horseshoe games. Also, 
a Beauty and the Beast program 
took place at Snookie's Bar in 
the evening. A member from 
each participatingsorority modeled 
swimsuits and evening wear and 
danced for 30 seconds. 

Todd Johnson, junior in 
agribusiness and president of AGR, 
said the fraternities wanted to 
use Tuttle Creek before the weather 
turned cold. 

Kurt Harrison, senior 


marketing and philanthropy 
chairman, said officials at Tuttle 
Creek were glad the event brought 
people to the lake. He said nearly 
1,000 people attended the non- 
alcoholic event. 

The AGRs also helped build 
the sand volleyball courts, an 
item Tuttle Creek officials had 
wanted built in the lake area. 

Joe Miller, senior in agricultural 
journalism, said he appreciated 
the participation of the other 
greek houses. The large turnout 
raised about $ 1 , 700 for Manhattan's 
Big Brothers/Big Sisters program. 

Johnson said the event was 
worthwhile because it helped the 
community. A past president had 
the idea to have the philanthropy 
at the lake because it hadn't been 
done before. The Pikes had a 
similar idea at the same time, so 
the fraternities teamed up. 

Miller said the joint effort 
was profitable. 

"We're glad to see that it has 
been such a success," Miller said.

kA fe 

Alpha Kappa Lambda and 
Sigma Sigma Sigma paired 
up to present Greek Gladiators, 
a spin-off from the "American 
Gladiators" television show. 

The AKLs decided to join 
the Tri Sigmas because they wanted 
to participate in a philanthropy. 

"They (the Tri Sigmas) offered 
us the opportunity to join them 
in their philanthropy," said Dan 
Rice, senior in journalism and 
mass communications. "We've 
been wanting to get involved in 
one for some time, so when they 
offered it to us, we accepted." 

AKL members said it was 
difficult to find an interesting 
philanthropy to participate in. 

"We wanted something that 
would be different than all of 
the others. We'd been brain- 
storming for a while when 
the Tri Sigmas approached us," 
said Dan Brungardt, senior in 
journalism and mass 
communications and AKL 
president. "It's hard to find a 

niche when there are so many 
other philanthropies out there." 

Participating in a philanthropy 
gave the AKLs a chance to give 
something back to the community. 

"Greek Gladiators gave us the 
opportunity to contribute to the 
nationally chosen philanthropy," 
Brungardt said. "We are glad that 
the Tri Sigs gave us the chance 
to work with them." 

The AKLs were also involved 
in other service projects. 

"Before the children are assigned 
to their big brother or big sister, 
we have an activity day," Brungardt 
said. "We play games, barbecue 
and have a good time with them." 

Greek Affairs helped the AKLs 
become active in the Big Brothers/ 
Big Sisters activity day. 

"We talked to people in Greek 
Affairs. They gave us information 
on Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and 
we wrote to them and got put on 
their mailing list," Brungardt said. 
"Then we decided to have the 
activity day for the children."

Striving for awareness 

and acceptance in the community 

By Scott Oberkrom 

lack greeks concen- 
trated on serving the 

"Black greeks strive to uplift the 
entire human race," said Carlotte 
|Moore, senior in social work and 
Zeta Phi Beta sorority member. "But 
black greeks are serving their own 
race as well." 

A member of Alpha Phi Alpha, 
Jayson Strickland, junior inelemen- 
itary education, said his fraternity 
conducted many events to benefit 
the community. 

"You realize it (serving the com- 
munity) is a lifelong commitment," 
Strickland said. "We have more of 
a community service base. We do a 
tot more than j ust Step (Neak Frasty 
Step Show)." 

The Alpha Phi Alphas were 
iinvolved with continuing educa- 
tion programs, such as tutoring 10- 
12 middle school students and tak- 
ing them to campus activities. 

"We take them to the vet school 
(College of Veterinary Medicine) 
and to the radio station to see what 
pes on," Strickland said. "We have 
i brother who works there (the 
radio station)." 

The Alpha Phi Alphas also 
vorked with the Boy Scouts of 
\merica and Project Alpha, an 
effort to educate males about their 

role in preventing teenage preg- 

Moore said when the black greek 
system first formed, emphasis was 
on the fraternities and sororities 
serving as support systems. 

"When racism was high, black 
students needed a community for 
support," Moore said. "Black frater- 
nities and sororities could provide 
that support." 

Some members joined to help 
with the philanthropic endeavors. 

"It was a way for me to get in- 
volved with community service and 
meet people," said Vanda Morrow, 
senior in marketing and Delta 
Sigma Theta sorority member. 

Some aspects of the black greek 
system varied from the other cam- 
pus greek system. The black greeks 
had an affiliation process, known as 
an "intake process," which was dif- 
ferent than other greek houses that 
participated in "rush." 

"We (black greeks) send letters 
and put up posters to notify others 
of our informational meetings," 
Moore said. 

Although requirements var- 
ied with each fraternity and so- 
rority, applicants generally 
needed a minimum grade point 
average of 2.5. They also needed 
to receive a recommendation 

from a member of the fraternity 
or sorority and have participated 
in an interview. 

The size of a black greek frater- 
nity or sorority was between three 
to 15 members. The small size was 
the main reason they did not live 
together in their own fraternity or 
sorority house. 

"We generally live with other 
brothers, but we never know how 
many members we will have next 
year," Strickland said. 

Since they lacked a house, 
Moore said black greeks had their 
meetings at a member's house or at 
the K-State Union. Strickland said 
a house would be beneficial for the 
organizations because it would pro- 
vide a place for meetings and social 

Despite not living with mem- 
bers of her sorority, Moore said the 
members remained close. She also 
said her sorority maintained strong 
ties with their regional and na- 
tional offices. 

"There is a member at-large. 
She is an undergraduate student 
who acts as a liaison between na- 
tional and local chapters," Moore 
said. "We have state, regional and 
national meetings regularly. We get 
together to discuss business and 
meet other members." 

"Black greeks strive to 
uplift the entire human 
race . But black greeks 
are serving their own 
race as well."

Voices and footsteps echoed 
through Aheam Field House 
as groups performed their step 
routines in the Neak Frasty Step 
Show Nov. 13. Groups traveled 
from Missouri and Kansas to par- 
ticipate in Alpha Phi Alpha 
fraternity's fundraiser. 

"We had more groups partici- 
pate this year," said Jayson 
Strickland, junior in elementary 
education and step show coordi- 
nator. "We like to invite all black 
greeks from the surrounding states 
to step. It's up to them whether 
they come or not." 

The step show brought frater- 
nity and sorority members together. 

"The show gave members a 
chance to travel and visit each 
other," Strickland said. "Some- 
times they need an excuse to get 
together. The step show is that 
excuse, plus it allows them to show 
their fraternity or sorority's spirit." 

Over 1,000 spectators watched 
Neak Frasty, which raised more 
than $4,000. The money will be 
used to fund scholarships for high 

school and college students. 

"We will award three $250 schol- 
arships to high school students and 
one $250 scholarship to a college 
student," Strickland said. "We will 
award the scholarships to the re- 
cipients during the candlelight cer- 

Kappa Alpha Theta and Delta Up- 
silon also participated in the step show. 

"It was our first year. We wanted 
to experience something new, so we 
decided to try the step show," said 
Jeff Peebler, senior in pre-physical 
therapy and DU member. 

In the men's competition, Kappa 
Alpha Psi members from Central 
Missouri State University won the 
first place trophy and a $400 prize. 

K-State's Delta Sigma Theta 
sorority won first place in the 
women's competition by edging 
out last year's winners, Alpha 
Kappa Alpha. They also received 
$400 and a trophy. 

"The step show has definitely 
gained in popularity," Strickland 
said. "We hope to have another 
one next year."

Using a hot branding iron, 
members of Omega Psi Phi 
burned willing members with the 
symbol of their fraternity. 

"I had it done about a year 
ago," said Reggie Blackwell, j unior 
in journalism and mass commu- 
nications. "It stung a little, but 
it didn't hurt too bad." 

Branding members wasn't an 
Omega Psi Phi tradition, but af- 
ter being initiated, many of the 
new members wanted brands. 

"I had it done shortly after I 
was initiated last year," said Michael 
Graham, junior in secondary 
education. "I wanted something 
that showed how serious I was 

about being a member." 

Members chose to brand them- 
selves out of respect for their 

"I did it (branding) because 
it has a symbolic meaning to 
me," Blackwell said. "Each in- 
dividual derives his own mean- 
ing out of it." 

Although the branding was 
not required, members had it 
done to show pride. 

"I wanted a brand because it 
was a symbol of my pride in the 
fraternity," Graham said. "No 
one made me do it. It was my 
choice alone. It's not a question 
of tradition, but choice."

Camouflage-clad combatants 
fired at one another with

The shooting took place Sept. 
26-27 in the Alpha Tau Omega 
Paintball Tournament at Krazy 
Kris's Paintball Supplies, where 
24 six-member teams participated 
in the philanthropy. 

Dave Ratzlaff, senior in interior 
design, said it took about four 
months to plan and prepare for 
the event. 

"We had 24 teams participate 
in the tournament. We had to 
make sure there were enough 
guns and paintballs for everyone," 
he said. "We also had to make 
sure we were released from 

Team members were required 
to read and sign liability release 
forms for both Krazy Kris's and 

"We drafted our own liability 
form off the one that Krazy Kris's 
supplied," Ratzlaff said. "Then 
we had a lawyer look it over to 

make sure everything was in order 
and legal." 

Teams participated in rounds 
until they won and advanced to 
the next round in theirdivision. 

To win a round, a team had to 
capture the other team's flag and 
carry it safely into their opponents' 

"The Tri-Delts easily won the

their opponents in less than two

366 in Alpha Xi Delta 



Alpha Xi Delta 


Gathering together for a week 
of competition, fraternities 
competed in the Alpha Xi Delta 
Greek Games, a philanthropy 
benefiting the American Lung 
Association. This year, the Alpha 
Xis wanted their proceeds to 
specifically go toward children's 

"Our national fraternity decided 
that children were going to be 
our focus. We'll keep giving to 
the American Lung Association, 
but we'll ask that it goes to help 
children," said Jennifer Butner, 
junior in apparel and textile 
marketing. "The focus on children 
makes it a lot easier to find other 
things to give to." 

Eighteen fraternities partici- 
pated in the event. The week 
started with a showcasing of chests. 
One member from each of the 
competing fraternities was cho- 
sen by his house to have a pic- 
ture of his chest taken. The pho- 
tos were displayed in the K-State 

Union, and people voted on the 
chests by donating money. The 
pictures raised more than $ 1 ,800 
for charity. 

"I think we get a lot of positive 
response from the contest. The 
fraternities have started looking 
forward to it," said Carla Van 
Nostran, senior in radio television. 
"They have stopped looking for 
the best chests, and we have 
been getting a lot of beer guts. It 
gets a lot of laughs in the Union." 

The members of Alpha Xi 
also had the chance to try their 
hand at coaching games including 
volleyball, tug of war, horseshoes 
and tricycle races. 

"At first I thought it would be 
a lot harder than it really was. It 
also turned out to be a lot more 
fun, "said Kristine Lincon, junior 
in English. "We had a good time 
teaching them the dance steps 
for the lip syncing contest and 
helping them with costumes. It 
was just a lot of fun."

Like father, like son. 
Chad Jackson, senior in 
elementary education, and his 
father, David, a 1968 graduate 
in horticulture, both served as 
presidents — one of the Beta 
Sigma Psi fraternity and the other 
of the national chapter. 

While his son served as the 
K-State chapter's president, David 
was elected national president 
in October after serving as vice 
president for two years. 

Chad said his father donated 
money and became actively 
involved in the house after Chad 
joined three years ago. 

"He became involved by 
showing support and coming to 
more events since I was here," 
Chad said. "In addition, he comes 
to Homecoming and alumni 
meetings acoupletimesasemester." 

Chad said his father's national 
position was beneficial for the 
K-State chapter. 

"Him serving as national 
president is a benefit to the house 
because we have a direct line to 

him tn the Warrensburg, Mo., 
national headquarters," Chad said. 

Besides leading national 
executive council meetings, David 
set goals to increase membership 
in the fraternity. 

"Since national fraternities are 
onadecline, especially adecline 
in membership the last 10 years, 
I hope to turn that around and 
grow by 12 chapters in the next 
six years by colonizing or starting 
new chapters," he said. 

While Chad was proud of his 
father, he said being the son of 
the national president had one 

"It puts a lot of pressure on 
me to succeed because things 
have changed in the fraternity 
and the greek system since he 
has been here," Chad said. "I 
know some of the old ways of 
doing things through him, so I 
draw on his knowledge to use 
the best of both worlds. 

"Because he's national president, 
I'm expected to do things right 
without question. Sometimes it's 

difficult in the house because 
my father's expectations are 
different from the guys' expectations 
in the fraternity. I was raised to 
believe certain things by my father, 
but it is difficult since I know 
and hear what the guys want." 

Despite the problem of trying 
to please both his father and 
fraternity brothers, Chad said 
serving as president was worthwhile. 

"As fraternity president, the 
job entails showing a bit more 
maturity and more responsibility 
than any other office I've held. 
Above all, (the position requires) 
enthusiasm for school and the 
fraternity," Chad said. "It's been 
a challenging experience keeping 
on top of my classes and other 
activities. Twenty-four hours a 
day, every day, the ultimate 
responsibility is with the president." 

David agreed. 

"I sacrifice my time and a lot 
of money comes out of my pocket," 
he said, "but I'm committed to 
serving as president because it 
makes a difference."

The Beta Theta Pis blew up 
an inflatable Budweiserbeer 
can to mark the beginning of 
their philanthropic volleyball 
tournament, Spiketacular, Sept. 
11-12. Although the wind caused 
their sponsor's balloon to become 
unanchored, fraternity members 
said the money raised for charity 
made the hassles worthwhile. 

"We raised over $4,000 for the 
Manhattan Youth Center," said 
Rob Ames, junior in animal sciences 
and industry. "We wish we could 
have raised more, but we were 
happy we could do some good." 

The Betas provided support 
by coaching teams and purchasing 
donuts for them on the first day 
of the tournament. The Betas 
also took the winning teams out 
to celebrate. 

Alpha Tau Omega took first 
place in the men's division, and 

Alpha Chi Omega captured first 
place in the women's division. 
Organizers said the tournament 
was not j ust a competition between 
greek houses, but a bonding 

"The best part of Spiketacular 
was the way it brought everyone 
together at the beginning of the 
year," said Brian Ward, sophomore 
in pre-optometry. 

However, the Betas spent a 
lot of time preparing for it. Last 
spring, the Betas found sponsors 
and sold T-shirts. Coordination 
between the teams, coaches and 
referees also went into the 
tournament's planning. 

"In the past, we had problems 
with some of the calls referees 
made," Ward said. "This year, 
we were able to get more professional 
ones. The tournament ran

Chi Omega 




The Chi Omegas and the S igma 
Nus sponsored the 1992 
Pledge Olympics on Sept. 27, 
with 22 fraternities and all but 
one sorority participating. All 
proceeds were donated to the 
American Red Cross. 

Mandy Hanson, junior in 
journalism and mass comm- 
unications and philanthropy 
chairperson, said the 1992 Pledge 
Olympics raised an estimated 
$3,000 through entry fees. The 
proceeds were used by the Red 
Cross to help disaster victims 
and others needing help. 

"The American Red Cross helps 
so many people — whoever is in 
need, they try to help," said Shanna 
Robben, senior in secondary 
education. "The proceeds went 
to Hurricane Andrew victims." 

Pledges from the houses 
competed in contests including 
running events, tug of war, a 
Softball throw, a broomstick toss 
and Simon Says. 

Members from Chi Omega 
began working with Sigma Nu 

members during the spring to set 
a date for the event, order T- 
shirts and contact a radio station 
to cover the event. Members 
divided into committees so 
everyone could contribute ideas. 

Gamma Phi Beta pledges took 
first place in the sorority division 
and Delta Upsilon won in the 
fraternity division. Both houses 
received trophies, and individual 
event winners received compact 
discs, gift certificates and T-shirts. 

The Chi O's didn't compete 
because they had to make sure 
the competitions ran smoothly. 

"It was a cool fundraiser because 
we worked with other people 
instead of just doing something 
by ourselves," said Kristen Laughlin, 
freshman in elementary education. 

Chi O members said their 
philanthropy also served as a 
bonding experience for the pledges 
who participated. 

"Everyone seemed to have 
good time. It was a spirited day." 
said Shannon Voelker, freshman 
in pre-physical therapy.

Delta Chi fraternity returns 

to campus after 14 years absence 

By Trina Holmes 

liers, newspaper ads, 
telephone calls, meet- 
ings and footwork marked Delta 
l Chi fraternity's re-entrance into 
the greek system after 14 years of 
: absence. 

The fraternity chapter was dis- 
banded in 1978 due to low mem- 
bership and financial instability. 
Delta Chi members said negative 
portrayal of fraternity life in the 
media was also detrimental to the 
house's survival. 

"The '60s and 70s weren't kind 
to fraternities," said Scott Leigh, 
senior leadership consultant from 
I Delta Chi headquarters. "For in- 
stance, 'Animal House' was a hi- 
larious movie, but it did nothing 
for us — we didn't drive motor- 
cycles through houses or destroy 
the campus. People got turned off 
of fraternities from that movie." 

Delta Chi placed emphasis on 
I the traditional aspects of the order, 
rather than the social aspects, and 
150 men expressed interest in join- 
ing the fraternity. Out of these 
imen, 87 were asked to become 
lassociate members. 

"When a Delta Chi chapter 
starts out, we have a four-fold obli- 
gation to meet when looking for 
members: to promote friendship, 
develop character, advance justice 
and assist in the acquisition of a 
sound education," Leigh said. "We 

send out mass mailings and invite 
people to come and see what we're 
doing. We don't start by talking 
about all the parties we can have or 
the sorority women we can date. 
We talk about responsibilities first 
and privileges second. We want to 
establish something that we can be 
proud of — not an Animal House." 

Associate members also felt the 
need to change the stigma attached 
to greek life. 

"I had been through parts of 
rush, but I didn't like a lot of what 
I saw," said Jeff Schutzler, sopho- 
more in environmental design. "I 
wanted to be a founding father and 
try to change things." 

However, Schutzler said start- 
ing a fraternity was not all fun and 

"It's a lot of hard work. We all 
have to take up the slack," he said. 
"When one of us doesn't do his job, 
the whole group is affected. We are 
still trying to establish ourselves 
and present a positive image." 

One member of Delta Chi had 
been initiated at Southwest Mis- 
souri State, but said he was hesitant 
to suggest policy changes that would 
make K-State's chapter similar to 

"I don't want to make this an- 
other Southwest Missouri State 
chapter," said Brian Foxworthy, 
senior in architecture and Delta 

Chi sergeant-at-arms. "I try to let 
the guys make their own decisions 
so they make it their own chapter." 

On top of administrative prob- 
lems, the fraternity faced a housing 
problem — they had no house. 
However they were hoping to have 
a house built within two years. 

"We meet in room 211 in the 
Union. It's an informal atmosphere, 
so it's just not the same as holding 
a chapter meeting under the coat of 
arms in a fraternity house environ- 
ment," said Mark Page, sophomore 
in business administration and 
Delta Chi charter president. "It's 
also hard to get to know everyone 
because we don't live together. It's 
especially hard for me because I'm 
the president. I feel bad when guys 
say 'Hi' and I don't know their 

However, Page said the oppor- 
tunities derived from being a found- 
ing father made the work worth- 

"Founding fathers are viewed 
differently than ordinary associate 
members. The rules are different 
because they have most of the rights 
of actives," Page said. "It's (being a 
founding father) a great opportu- 
nity. We're able to create a frater- 
nity rather than join one that's 
already in existence. We don't have 
to go with the flow; we get to have 
our own input and create bylaws." 

"We don't start by 
talking about all the 
parties we can have or 
the sorority women we 
can date. We talk about

Locking members of 26 
fraternities and sororities in 
the Last Chance Restaurant and 
Saloon helped the Delta Delta 
Delta sorority raise money for 
children's cancer research at Saint 
Jude's Hospital. On Sept. 25, 
the annual Tri-Delt philanthropy, 
Jail-n-Bail, raised more than $3, 000. 

The participating greek houses 
each chose a member to be locked 
up. During the day, entertainment 
was provided through games, a 
dunking booth and a karyoke 

"I think our philanthropy went 
well this year," said Jenni Smith, 
junior in chemical engineering. 
"More houses participated. 
Therefore, more people came down 
to see their members. With the 
increased support, more money 
was raised. Also, this year our 
house seemed more involved and 

The event's planning and 
organizing started before the 
semester began. 

"In June or July, plans for T- 
shirt designs were started," said 
Jaime Jacobs, junior inelementary 
education. "The remainder of 
the plans were completed at the 
first of the semester." 

Money was raised through a 
$55 entry fee and a $1 donation 
at the door. 

"We had a great turnout this 
year, and everyone had a good 
time," said Laura Howard, 
sophomore in secondary education. 
"We made a lot of money j ust off 
the donations at the door. It 
seemed like people really cared 
because they were willing to come 
and give to a good cause." 

The women in the house also 
helped children in other ways 
besides Jail-n-Bail. 

"Around Easter time, we send 
coloring books and crayons to 
the children at Saint Jude's 
Hospital," Jacobs said. "Also, any 
of the donations that we receive 
from the alumnae are sent for 
research as well."

By sending letters to Delta 
Sigma Phi fraternity chapters 
across the nation, Brian Artzer, 
sophomore in electrical 
engineering, organized the Delta 
Sig's annual Softball tournament. 

The philanthropy, benefiting 
the March of Dimes, involved 
15-20 chapter teams from states 
as far as Pennsylvania, Louisiana 
and Michigan, as well as alumni 
teams. The state-wide trek was 
too far for some alumni, but the 
tournament had regular 

"Our house team participates 
and so does our alumni team," 
Artzer said. "Also, chapter and 
alumni teams from the University 
of Missouri and the University 
of Colorado always come." 

Local fraternity members said 
the interaction they had with 
other chapters across the nation 
was an educational experience. 

"Ourphilanthropy is beneficial 
for our fraternity because we get 
to know other Delta Sigs," said 

Corey Long, senior in physical 
education. "We get to meet people 
with common interests from across 
the United States. We share stories 
and experiences; it's a real 
brotherhood-building experience." 

The Delta Sigs also adopted 
an additional philanthropy. During 
the Children's Festival at the 
Manhattan Town Center, the 
fraternity had an Ident-a-Kid booth. 
In conjunction with the Riley 
County Police Department, 
children were fingerprinted and 
videotaped during the first weekend 
of February. The children's parents 
were given a videotape and a 
card containing their child's 

"We videotape the child's 
characteristics like how they walk, 
what they look like, their traits 
and any birthmarks," Artzer said. 
"Parents should bring their children 
back every two to three years. 
This should help identify the 
children if they ever get lost or

Delta Tau Delta 


People didn't have to open 
their pocketbooks to sup- 
port the Delta Tau Delta 
philanthropy. All that was 
needed was their blood. 

For the past four years, Delts 
collected blood for the Ameri- 
can Red Cross. A blood drive 
was held each semester in rooms 
K, S and U at the K-State Union. 

"We supply 75 percent of the 
blood supply for Kansas and 
Oklahoma each year for the 
American Red Cross," said David 
Ridder, junior in finance. "The 
best part of the philanthropy is 
the knowledge we are helping 
others throughout the area in 
such a positive manner." 

The Delts sponsored the blood 
drive with help from Lafene Health 
Center and the American Red 
Cross. Besides donating blood, 
students also served as volun- 
teers. Their duties included tak- 
ing blood pressures, checking and 
assisting donors and handing out 

food and drinks to donors. 

"I got involved because I saw 
this great looking nurse and thought 
I'd spend my week trying to pick 
up on her," said Jason Jenn, fresh- 
man in psychology. 

The Delts publicized the event 
with banners on campus and sign- 
up tables at the Union, food ser- 
vices and the Chester E. Peters 
Recreation Complex. 

The Delts also visited greek 
houses to encourage students to 
participate. They offered to sponsor 
a function for the fraternity and 
sorority who donated the most 
blood and time. The winners were 
Chi Omega and Phi Gamma Delta. 

Raising blood instead of money 
had benefits. 

"We know where our proceeds 
are going," said Jeff Balthrop, 
sophomore in political science. 
"Money can be used for count- 
less things, but it's rarely revealed 
how its spent. We know our blood 
is saving lives."

Delta Upsilon 


Sales Aid 



By Renelle Everett 

Hundreds of women applied 
to be chosen as one of the 
12 women featured in the Delta 
Upsilon calendar. 
The contest helped raise money 
for The Villages, an area in Topeka 
with homes for abused and 
abandoned children. 

On the night of the competition, 
spectators crowded into Snookie's 
Bar to cheer the contestants on. 
Faculty members also made an 
appearance at "teacher night," 
where they served as guest judges. 

"I think this is the most fun 
and exciting event," said Jeff De 
Voider, sophomore in business 
administration. "Everyone has 
fun, yet we still make money for 
an excellent cause." 

The DUs were serious about 
the fund-raising event. Each year, 
two members were chosen to be 
in charge of organizing the contest. 

Doug Mulanax, sophomore in 
speech pathology and audiology, 
and Mike Chance, freshman in 
business administration, headed 
the event. They organized work 
days when DU members drove 
to Topeka and volunteered their 
time for various tasks, including 
building fences and picking up 

"The guys who planned this 
put in a lot of time and effort," 
said Todd Chyba, senior in 

The amount of money the 
DUs donated depended upon the 
success of the calendar. Last spring, 
the DUs raised $3,000 for The 

"This is one of the few 
philanthropies that has a good 
turnout and gets a lot of people 
involved," Mulanax said. "People 
really enjoy going to it."

388 hi Delta Upsilon 








By BUI Spiegel 

Dribbling, passing and shooting, 
players competed in the 
Shootout in the Ville, a three- 
on-three basketball tournament 
co-sponsored by FarmHouse and 
the Arnold Air Society. 

The event raised $500 for Big 
Lakes Developmental Center and 
an additional $300 for the KSU 
Vietnam Veterans Memorial. 

Doug Loyd, senior in marketing 
and president of FarmHouse, said 
the tournament gained the support 
of many area businesses. 

Radio station KQLA-FM 103.9 
helped with the business decisions, 
including finding sponsors for 
the tournament. Pizza Hut paid 
for the T-shirts that were given 
to tournament entrants. 

The tournament took place 
April 25-26. Ted Glasco, 
sophomore in computer science 
and philanthropy chairman, said 
a lot of work was necessary to 
pull the event off. 

"We had to reserve a parking 
lot in Aggieville for the day," he 

said. "Portable goals were needed, 
and fliers had to be given out. In 
addition, commercial spots were 
used on the radio." 

Glasco said 40 teams par- 
ticipated, as opposed to about 
20 in 1990. Winners of the 
tournament received $150 cash 
and a prize from the sponsors. 
The winning teams also had their 
$28 entry fee reimbursed. 

In the past, women competed 
against the men on co-ed teams, 
but a women's division was added 
this year. 

Larry Whipple, junior in 
agricultural economics, said the 
philanthropy was beneficial to 
all who participated. 

"We're always looking to 
improve, and we're hoping to 
improve the tournament next 
year," Whipple said. "We want 
to fine tune (the event), promote 
more and get more teams involved. 
We also need to get a few more 
courts so things would run more

Each year, Gamma Phi 
Beta raised money for Camp 
Sechek, a Canadian summer camp 
for underprivileged females, by 
putting on Spiketacular, a volleyball 
tournament. The Gamma Phis 
co-sponsored the event with the 
Beta Theta Pi fraternity. 

Spiketacular raised a total of 
for their charities. 

"Pairing with the Betas for 
Spiketacular is a strong point," 
said Beth Baranczuk, sophomore 
in elementary education. "It allows 
both fraternities and sororities 
to compete . The guys show up to 
watch the girls' games and vice 
versa. Overall, support is great." 

Each member of the Gamma 
Phi house had an active role. 

"Within the house, the women 
are divided into different coaching 
teams for each of the fraternities," 
Baranczuk said. "Usually, the 
women will do funny skits to 
inspire the fraternity teams. They 
support that team all the way 
through the competition. The 

women who coached a team will 
often be invited over for dinner 
in appreciation for their 

While the philanthropy relied 
on the participation of greeks, it 
also had the support of local 
businesses who served as sponsors. 

"The sponsorship from the 
community allows the whole 
philanthropy to take place," said 
Jennifer Little, senior in elementary 
education. "That (their donations) 
is what we use to pay the referees 
and for other expenses. Without 
their support, we would not be 
successful in making any money 
to benefit Camp Sechelt." 

Besides the money raised at 
Spiketacular, Camp Sechelt 
received additional support from 
the Gamma Phis. 

"During the all-house retreat, 
we decorated bags and bought 
toiletries to send the children so 
the camp wouldn't have to buy 
them," Baranczuk said. "We try 
to do one project like this a

"The first time I worked,

women) had a houseboy

the kitchen for extra cash 

By Lisa Staab and Kristi Stephenson 

leaning up kitchens, 
washingdishes, mopping 
floors and serving food weren't jobs 
most people enjoyed, but houseboys 
who performed these tasks in soror- 
ity houses while surrounded by 
women saw otherwise. 

Jason Hodgdon, sophomore in 
business administration and Pi Beta 
Phi houseboy, enjoyed his job. 

"I meetnewpeople 
and broaden my social 
circle," Hodgdon said. 

Jeff Fowler, junior 
in parks and recreat ion 
administration liked 
being an Alpha Delta 
Pi houseboy for more 
practical reasons. 

"I enjoy it since it's 
j ust a part-time job that 
helps out with ex- 
penses and doesn't re- 
quire a lot of time," 
Fowler said. 

Houseboys said one 
of the j ob's benefits was 
the money. 

"It's a practical way 
to earn extra money at 
school," said Aaron 
Brammer, sophomore 
in business administra- 
tion and Delta Delta 
Delta houseboy. 

Martha Reynard, 
the Pi Phi house- 
mother, said house- 
boys performed a vari- 
ety of chores. 

"They empty trash, put away 
groceries and supplies, scrub and 
mop the floors every night and wash 
dishes, as well as odd jobs like chang- 
ing light bulbs for me," she said. 

Reynard said eight houseboys 
were needed to fill the schedule. 
The houseboy who had been work- 
ing the longest became head house- 
boy and earned more money than 
the others, she said. 

Cynthia M itchell, the Tri-Delt's 
cook, saidhouseboyswereabighelp. 

"I prepare the food for the week- 
end and they come in, put it in the 

oven and then serve it for me," 
Mitchell said. "They are very de- 

Charles Anderson, senior in fish- 
eries and wildlife biology, was a 
houseboy at Kappa Alpha Theta 
for four years, during which time he 
enjoyed hearing the women gossip. 

"I mostly hear gossip about men," 
Anderson said. "Sometimes they'll

senior in agronomy, checks the chicken in the oven for the

even ask me for my advice." 

Although he listened to their prob- 
lems, Anderson said their relationship 
did not go beyond friendship. 

"I've never wanted to date any- 
one serious because I see the girls 
every day, and it wouldn't be good 
for the job," Anderson said. "Oth- 
erwise, I have developed some good 

Fowler agreed it was best to not 
become romantically involved. 

"I'm just friends with the 
women," he said. "It would be hard 
to date any of them because if some- 
th ing goes wrong, I'd still have to go 

over there." 

Most of the houseboys said the} 
learned of the jobs through girl- 
friends, sisters and other friends. 

"I had some friends in the dorms 
who worked as houseboys," Ander- 
son said, "so when a guy quit, I went 
in to help and the housemom askec 
if I wanted to continue working." 
The houseboys agreed the mosi 
embarrassing part of the 
job was their introduc 
tion at formal dinner. 
"The first time 
worked, they had ; 
houseboy initiation,' 
Anderson said. "Th<

Fowler also hac 
embarrassing mo 
ments while working 
"I got as red as ; 
beet when I attemptec 
to sing 'Friends in Lov 
Places,' " he said. "I 
was definitely embar 
rassing to me because 
couldn't remember al 
the words. Anothe 
time I was picking up 
knife and it spui 
around and got in 
member's hair. One other embar 
rassing moment was when my boxe 
shorts were hung in the kitchen.' 
Despite the embarrassing mc 
ments, the houseboys said they en 
joyed their jobs. Scott Cooper, se 
nior in agronomy, said the best pai 
of his job was the opportunity h 
had to make new friends. 

"I look at the houseboy positio 
not as a job, but as a chance to gt 
paid for socializing," Cooper saic 
"It has given me the chance to met 
so many people, and gives me 
feeling that I have been a part (

Kappa Alpha Theta 

Kappa Alpha Theta members 
sold Christmas cards and 
hosted a soccer tournament to 
raise money for the Court 
Appointed Special Advocates 

Seven men's soccer teams and 
one women's team were scheduled 
to compete during the fall semester, 
but the tournament was cancelled 
due to rain. 

"Since the tournament was 
cancelled, entry fees were returned 
and we only raised about $200," 
said Tisha Schmelzle, junior in 
foods and nutrition-exercise 
science. "We are planning to 
reschedule during the spring 

The local CASA organization 
asked for a Theta member to 
serve on the board of directors, 
so Schmelzle joined. 

"The purpose of me being on 
the board of directors at CASA 
is so they can know more of 
what we, as a chapter, are doing. 
I can learn what's going on in 

the organization," Schmelzle said. 
"Being more informed in this 
way helps us to know how we 
can help them." 

CASA volunteers performed 
research and informed the judge 
on the best course of action for 
the 430,000 abused, abandoned 
or neglected children that had 
been removed from their homes. 

"It's good we can do something 
for CASA. I hope the tournament 
will be rescheduled and the enthu- 
siasm will be high," said Shannon 
Mueller, senior in marketing. "The 
services we are supporting can 
influence a child's life, so support 
we can offer is helpful." 

Kitchel Stephenson, junior in 
psychology, said if more sorority 
members understood CASA, 
support for it would be stronger. 

"The house is already increasing 
its support. They are becoming 
more aware and understanding 
its purpose," Stephenson said. 
"We have a lot to give these kids 
who can't give much in return.

Training (to become a 

CASA volunteer) was a learn- 
ing process. The general im- 
portance of a volunteer is as a 
mediator. You are an objective 
person who has studied the 

case and child and looks out 

for his best interests. 

— Kitchel Stephenson 

junior in psychology 



One of the benefits of CASA 
as our philanthropy is that the 
word about abuse gets out not 
only through the soccer tourna- 
ment, but also through the 
information booth at the Activi- 
ties Fair in the Union and by 

raffle tickets we have sold.

Kappa Delta 

It was tee-off time as the 
Kappa Delta sorority sponsored 
their third annual Golf Classic. 
The philanthropy, open to the 
K-State and University of Kansas 
greek systems, was located at Custer 
Hill in Fort Riley. 

"We have about 50 two-man 
scramble teams participate," said 
Tracey Reyna, junior in jour- 
nalism and mass communications. 
"We feel this is a good response." 

For the first time, the KDs 
opened the tournament up to 
the Manhattan and Lawrence 

"We wanted to involve others 
besides just the greeks in the 
golf tournament," Reyna said. 
"We thought it would be a new 
and different twist and found it 
a big success." 

The golf tournament provided 
the opportunity for members to 
work together and sponsor a fund- 
raising event for people in need. 

"We are very honored to 

contribute to the Manhattan 
community and bring the greek 
system together for one purpose," 
Reyna said. 

The money raised from the 
weekend golfing event was donated 
to the National Prevention of 
Child Abuse and Manhattan's 
Big Lakes Developmental Center 
Inc., which provided aid for 
mentally disabled people. 

The center sponsored workshop 
programs consisting of job training, 
independent living and craft work. 
The workshops were geared toward 
each mentally disabled person's 
ability level. 

"The KDs played an 
instrumental role in funding the 
quality programs," said Ilene Adams, 
public relations supervisor for 
the Developmental Center. 

"We have a budget of $2.5 
million, and the KDs have brought 
in about $26,000 over the last 
eight years, which helps out." 
Adams said.

When it came to community 
service, the Kappa Kappa 
Gamma sorority was active in 
several programs. 

Although the Kappas did not 
have a specific fundraiser for their 
philanthropy, the Rose McGill 
Fund, they did work to raise money 
through various community service 

"We don't have a big project 
to raise money for our philanthropy 
like a lot of the other houses 
do," said Rebecca Mitchell, junior 
in pre-occupational therapy and 
philanthropy chairperson. "We 
do several small projects throughout 
the year to raise money for the 
Rose McGill Fund instead." 

Mitchell said the fund provided 
money for Kappa alumnae who 
were in need. The money raised 
helped women whose husbands 
had died or those whose homes 
were destroyed in natural disasters. 
The Rose McGill Fund was 
supported exclusively through 
Kappa chapters across the nation. 

"Our nationals like to stress 
community service as opposed 
to large fundraisers," Mitchell 
said. "We raised $ 1 60 this semester, 
and hope we will be able to raise 
at least that much next semester." 

The Kappas worked together 
to raise the money by babysitting 
at Lee Elementary School's Parent- 
Teacher Organization meetings. 

"I liked the variety of children 
that we babysat for," said Krista 
Skahan, sophomore in pre- 
occupational therapy. 

"They were different ages, and 
they made for a very interesting 
afternoon. The room we were in 
also was nice because we had a 
lot of things we could do with 
the kids such as movies and toys. 
We also had a chalkboard available 
to us," she said. 

Other community service 
projects the Kappas participated 
in were hosting skating parties 
with the Big Brothers/Big Sisters 
of Manhattan and raising money 
for the Flint Hills Breadbasket. 

"We usually pair up with a 
fraternity and do a roller skating 
party with the kids," Mitchell 
said. "We take the kids who 
don't have matches yet and 
have a lot of fun with them." 

Although the Kappas did 
not have one large fundraiser, 
Mitchell said members liked 
doing several projects through- 
out the year. 

"I think they enjoy it 
(community service projects),"

Becca Sherer, sophomore

"I think the difference 
between us and the rest of the 
greek houses is that we don't 
have a bigfundraiser," she said. 
"We raise money on our own 
and don't depend on other 
fraternities and sororities to 
help us make money."

The coming of spring brought 
outdoor activities and Kappa 
Sigma's 14th annual softball 
tournament. The philanthropy 
took place at Twin Oaks Softball 
Complex in late April and early 
May. The Kappa Sigs extended 
the tournament to two weekends 
to allow more teams to participate. 

The first weekend consisted 
of the Greek State Tournament, 
open to any fraternity in the 
state of Kansas, and the Kappa 
Sigma Tournament, open to any 
Kappa Sig chapter. The next 
weekend, United States Slow Pitch 
Softball Association teams played. 

"We estimate that we'll have 
over 100 teams this year," said 
Chris Bahl, senior in political 
science. "This will also help out 
Manhattan because about 80 
percent of the teams come from 
out of town." 

With the increased size of the 
tournament, Bahl said the 
philanthropy had the potential 
to raise about $10,000, which 

they donated to the Manhattan 
City and Recreation Commission. 

"Our philanthropy raises money 
to buy new uniforms for Manhattan 
kids," said Lance Miller, sophomore 
in arts and sciences. 

With help from the Kappa 
Sigs, each team was allowed to 
have complete sets of uniforms. 

"They have a problem finding 
sponsors for all of the teams," 
Bahl said. "This way, they won't 
have to worry about it because 
we will sponsor them." 

The Kappa Sigs were sponsored 
by Coors Brewing Company, and 
had additional help from the Nike 

"Steve Miller was the athletic 
director at K-State before he went 
to work for Nike," Bahl said. 
"His son is a Kappa Sig in Chicago, 
so I called him up to see if they 
would sponsor us." 

As the officer in charge of the 
philanthropy, Bahl said he enj oyed 
getting sponsors and encouraging 
new teams to participate.

T'he chariot races of ancient 
Greek days came alive at K- 
State during the March Lambda 
Chi Alpha Greek Chariot races. 

With old metal carts, members 
of over 24 greek houses raced 
around the track at Memorial 
Stadium, competing to win a 
traveling trophy. 

The event was K-State's longest 
running philanthropy. It began 
30 years ago to benefit the Special 
Olympics. Last year, $1,700 was 
donated to the charity. 

"It's a good theme for the 
greeks to get involved with," said 
Todd Stedry, junior in marketing. 
"It (the races) brings the houses 
together for a good cause. It has 
a lot of tradition." 

The chariot races involved 
two men pulling a woman around 
the 400-meter track, or two women 
pulling a man. At times, the 
women were not heavy enough 
to hold on during the turns. 

"They (the drivers) get going 
so fast. When they go into the 

turn, the momentum is too much 
and the girl falls off," said Jeb 
Clement, sophomore in business 

Riding in the cart was dangerous, 
but race workers also discovered 
the danger of standing alongside 
the track. 

"Jarrod Fish was working at 
the finish line where he would 
stop the racers. One time, they 
kept running and ran over him," 
Clement said. "He wasn't hurt; 
it was just pretty funny." 

The race participants were 
not the only ones who had the 
chance of winning — fans won 
prizes also. Sponsors donated prizes 
including tanning sessions, car 
speakers and dinners at Giorgio's 
Italian Restaurant that were given 
away in a raffle. 

"We usually find 13 or 14 
sponsors," Stedry said. "They donate 
prizes and buy spots on the shirts 
for $ 1 00. It's cheap advertisement 
for them, and it cuts down on 
our costs."

Phi Delta Theta 


Cool October temperatures 
did not stop the Phi Delta 
Theta fraternity from raising more 
than $2,500 in a flag football 
tournament. The event, open to 
the Manhattan community, took 
80-100 hours of preparation. 

"Even though the weather was 
bad, we raised enough money to 
donate to the cause and make 
our house stand out," said Shane 
Hollander, sophomore in 
environmental design. 

Despite the poor weather, the 
event attracted out of town par- 

"We seemed to have a good 
turnout," said Matt Somers, senior 
in accounting. "We had teams 
From out of town participate, 
ind alumni came back to play in 
:he tournament." 

The Phi Delts donated the 
oroceeds to the Lou Gehrig Disease 
Center. The center used the money 

to fund bone disease research. 

Somers was in charge of the 
tournament's referees. He said 
flag football was a good event to 
have for their philanthropy. 

"Football is fun and a good 
sporting event for college students," 
Somers said. 

The Phi Delts had their own 
team in the tournament and placed 
in the top four. 

"It was great competition," 
said Chris Tierney, freshman in 
sociology. "It is great that the

for a 


By Stephanie Hoelzel 

For 19 years, the Phi Gamma 
Delta fraternities from K-State 
and the University of Kansas 
have carried the game ball to 
the site of the KU vs. K-State 
football game. 

"We start from the Fiji house 
in either town and run the ball 
to the other house," said Rob 
Gillespie, junior in marketing 
and philanthropy chairman. "We 
either drive to the Fiji house in 
Lawrence or they drive out here 
the night before we run." 

Both Fiji chapters prepared 
for the run at the beginning of 
the fall semester. 

"We work closely with the 
Leukemia Society of America in 
Wichita," Gillespie said. "We're 
the second largest money raiser 
for them." 

Fiji members solicited local 
homes and businesses for 

"Manhattan has been a great 
community to work in. People 
know what we are about and 
they respond well with their 

donations," Gillespie said. " We 
get to the door, say three words 
and they donate." 

Along with door-to-door 
solicitations, cans and jars were 
put in convenience stores and 
other businesses to collect change 
from people. 

The Fij is started raising money 
for the Leukemia Society of 
America in 1973, after the death 
of Fiji member Rod Morgan. 

"Brother Morgan died in 1972 
from leukemia and ever since 
then the society has been our 
philanthropy," Gillespie said. "This 
was our 19th year running for 
this charity. We reached the 
$200,000 mark this year." 

At the pre-game ceremony, 
the game ball was presented to 
Morgan's parents, and a check 
for more than $12,000 was 
presented to the Leukemia Society 
of America. 

"Brother Morgan's parents are 
great. They come to the games 
each year and are supportive of 
our efforts," Gillespie said.

Helps a 



By Lisa Staab 

To help the beating of a child's 
heart was the goal of the 
Phi Kappa Tau's philanthropy. 
Phi Tau fraternity helped with 
the insurance costs of children's 
heart transplants for the Children's 
Heart Foundation in Lincoln, Neb. 

"Basically, we fired off the 
cannon during football games 
and received money for each shot 
fired," said Larry Snodgrass, senior 
in marketing. 

The funds were donated by 
local businesses and community 
members from Manhattan and 
surrounding cities including 
Wamego, Topeka, Frankfort, 
Marysville and Riley. 

"Each time the cannon was 
fired, we received $10 from each 
sponsor," he said. 

Snodgrass said the foundation 
started in 1985 by Dick Kahle, a 
PhiTau alumnus from Lincoln.Neb. 
Kahle's efforts resulted from a 
family tragedy. His daughter needed 
a transplant, but died waiting 
for one. 

"Kahle started raising money, 
and the national headquarters 
got involved," Snodgrass said. 
"The Phi Tau fraternities in the 
Midwest region raised more than 
$80,000 in the last two years." 

Due to the first year efforts of 
the cannon crew, the Phi Taus 
were able to donate $5,000 to 
the Children's Heart Foundation. 

"Everyone participated because 
it was a huge undertaking," 
Snodgrass said. "In addition to 
the cannon crew, there was a 
tremendous effort to get 
promotional sponsors for the foot- 
ball season." 

In addition, the Phi Taus sold 
T-shirts, distributed door-to-door 
fliers and presented educational 
seminars for local high schools 
and area organizations. 

"Since it was our first year, I 
set some goals," Snodgrass said. 
"First, I decided we needed a 
philanthropy, second, we needed 
to make it successful and third, 
we should earn at least $500."

Phi Kaps 


to Get 


By Todd Fleischer 

To some people, the idea of 
running around the block 
sounded ludicrous, but members 
of the Phi Kappa Theta fraternity 
thought otherwise. The Phi Kaps 
hosted the Phi Kappa Fun Run 
to raise money for the American 
Heart Association. 

John Lorimor, j unior in chemical 
science and Phi Kap philanthropy 
chairman, said the Phi Kaps chose 
to have the running event for 
the American Heart Association 
because it was a good way to get 
involved in the community. 

"We're pretty concerned with 
community involvement, and I 
think this projects a positive image 
to the community," Lorimor 
said. "It's good community relations 
because when we are trying to 
help a local charity, they see 
we're not just here to party." 

The Fun Run, which took place 
April 10, consisted of 10-kilometer 
and two-kilometer courses around 
the campus. In 1992, the fraternity 
raised $750 from the event, but 

Lorimor said the fraternity increased 
its goal. 

"In the past, we have raised 
about $750 each year, but this 
year our goal is to raise over 
$ 1 ,000," Lorimor said. "This year 
we started the planning process 
earlier and have been notifying 
clubs of the date, gathering sponsors, 
designing aT-shirt and publicizing 
the event to greeks. We are hoping 
runners will come from all over 
the state." 

Lorimor said that in previous 
years, around 80 people participated 
in the event. However, if the 
fraternity was to meet its goal, 
the event needed to attract more 

Rob Gillespie, sophomore in 
psychology and assistant 
philanthropy chairman, agreed. 

"If we get enough people, we 
will be able to meet our goal. It's 
a worthy cause , and we are hoping 
to get as many involved as possible 
through the radio and word of 
mouth," he said.

Dancing in water and diving 
in cowboy boots were events 
the Pi Beta Phi sorority used to 
raise money for charity. 

The Pi Phi Plunge took place 
from 9 a.m.-l p.m. Oct. 18 in 
the Natatorium. It was a swim 
meet for fraternities and sororities 
that includeddiving competitions, 
serious events, synchronized 
swimming and the Mr. Plunge 

The Pi Phis donated the money 
to the Arrowmont School of Arts 
and Crafts for Underprivileged 
People and Links to Literacy. 

Tammy Lough, junior in 
elementary education and 
philanthropy chairperson, said 
the event raised $1,500. 

"I feel it is important for us to 
help Arrowmont because the 
organization deals with education," 
said Dana Hutchison, senior in 
nutritional sciences and Pi Phi 
president. "We give them money 
from our event and also buy their 

"Every year we're surprised 
by our changes. This year we 
added a disc jockey and displayed 
sponsors on the back of the shirts. 
During 1991-92, our house was 
second in the nation for earning 
money for Arrowmont." 

Lough said the money came 
from sponsors and other businesses 
who contributed $50 to have 
their emblem on the back of the 

"Synchronized swimming is 
definitely the favorite," Lough 
said. "Ten to 20 males get together 
to do a water ballet to music." 

The judges were alumni o( 
the house and housemothers from 
participating fraternities. 
Seventeen out of 25 fraternities 
were involved. 

"I worked on the activity as far 
back as March in reserving the 
facility, sending letters to fraternities, 
and getting sponsors and alumni 
judges," Lough said. "By the time 
school started, I had all the sponsors 
and paper work done."

Pi Kappa Alpha 

The Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity 
started the fall semester by 
co-sponsoring Beach Bash with 
Alpha Gamma Rho. 

The event at Tuttle Creek 
wasn't a wild party, but a day of 
organized events that raised money 
for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of 

Dax Hayden, senior in horti- 
culture, said the Pikes started 
planning for the event in spring. 

"We have an obstacle course, 
canoe races, sand volleyball and 
tug-of- war competitions," Hayden 
said. "Everyone enjoys it." 

The fraternity men worked 
behind the scenes to make sure 
everything went as planned. 

"I had to go out to Tuttle 
early, set up events and make 
sure things ran smoothly when 
everyone got out there," said David 
Welte, sophomore in business 

"I also ran supplies out like 
the tug-of-war rope, shovels to 
dig the tug-of-war pit, inner tubes, 

pop, a tent and canoes," he said. 

Nine sororities and seven 
fraternities paid the $75 entry 
fee and participated in the event. 
The men raised about $2,000 for 
Big Brothers/Big Sisters of 

"It is a real social activity," 
said Greg Wright, senior in political 
science. "It's kind of like a beach 
party all day long." 

Lance Gutsch, sophomore in 
mechanical engineering, said more 
than 90 percent of the Pikes 
participated. He said the men 
were intensely competitive in 
the volleyball games. 

"It is a success," Gutsch said. 
"Everyone has a fun time." 

The men also had personal 
contact with the children they

guys over on a Saturday afternoon,"

Spending extended hours atop 
a 15-foot pole outside the 
K-State Union, Pi Kappa Phi 
fraternity members raised money 
for the nation's disabled. 

The money benefited People 
Understanding Severely Handi- 
capped, also known as PUSH 

PUSH America was started 
by the Pi Kappas national chapter 
in 1977 and was brought to the 
Kansas chapter a year later. 

"We (Pi Kappa Phi chapter) 
started PUSH," said Aaron Green, 
sophomore in landscape 
architecture. "It is exciting to 
know we started it and have 
continued it for all these years." 

The Hthannualphilanthropy 
was in early October. Pi Kap 
members took two-hour shifts 
to total more than 100 hours 
sitting on the pole. 

The members sat on a square 
platform on top of a pole and did 
homework or talked with friends 
throughout the week. 

"We raised around $600, and 
it was great for community 
awareness," Green said. "Having 
people ask about the event was a 
good feeling." 

Chris Burris, junior in animal 
sciences and industry, spent six 
hours on the platform and said it 
was a good feeling helping others 

"When I was sitting up there, 
it was good to see people asking 
what we were doing and donating 
to the cause," Burris said. 

A wheelchair was located at 
the bottom of the pole for donations 
to service groups in Manhattan 
for handicapped people. 

The Pi Kaps also raised money 
for PUSH America through a 
Window Wash at Wal-Mart's 
parking lot. Members washed car 
windshields for donations. 

"We hold this event once a 
semester and usually raise $300," 
Green said. "It was a fun afternoon 
and a great way to get to know 
other brothers better."

Sigma Alpha Epsilon 


The Sigma Alpha Epsilon 
fraternity provided three days 
of basketball with Hoop Fest, a 
philanthropy benefiting the Flint 
Hills Breadbasket. The SAE 
members chose the charity with 
the community in mind. 

"We decided instead of donating 
money to other causes, we would 
donate it to a local cause. This 
way someone from Manhattan 
can get help," said Jason Shamburg, 
sophomore in agribusiness. "It 
also helps us get sponsors." 

Hoop Fest was a double 
elimination tournament that 
included more than 25 fraternity 
teams from K-State and other 
colleges, including the University 
of Kansas and Emporia State 

The SAEs also allowed 
independent teams to compete 
in the February tournament. 

"It (Hoop Fest) is really 
competitive," said Pat Davie, 
sophomore in j ournalism and mass 
communications. "The fraternities 

usually send their intramural team 
because it's right before intramural 
competition begins. This kind 
of shows them how they are going 
to do, so they take it seriously." 

The SAEs used to co-sponsor 
Hoop Fest with a sorority, raising 
more than $1,000. However, this 
year the fraternity decided to 
organize the event on their own 
in order to raise more money. 

"They (sororities) can't use a 
lot of the sponsors we have. They're 
not allowed to wear it (sponsor's 
logo) on their shirts," Davie said. 
"We can get more money doing 
it on our own because of the 
sponsors we can get without them." 

Besides raising money for the 
Flint Hills Breadbasket, Hoop 
Fest provided a weekend of 
basketball for anyone who wanted 
to participate. 

"One of the good things about 
the tournament is that it doesn't 
exclude anyone on or off campus," 
said Brian Scott, junior in secondary

Members of Sigma Chi turned 
fundraising into fun while 
offering pre-finals stress relief in 
the form of Derby Days. The 
event, which spanned several days 
and involved competitions ranging 
from a volleyball tournament to 
a wide variety of games, raised 
money for the Children's Miracle 

Matt Aupperle, freshman in 
construction science, said the 
Sigma Chis switched charities. 
For the past 25 years, they had 
donated to the Cleo Wallace 
Center. However, they changed 
their focus and shifted their efforts 
to raise money for the Children's 
Miracle Network. 

"After 25 years with the Cleo 
Wallace Center, we've fulfilled 
our goals and got them off to a 
pretty good start," he said. "The 
national fraternity voted for the 
change, and now we have aspired 

new goals in the direction of 
contribution to the Children's 
Miracle Network." 

The annual event raised an 
average of $4,000 and involved 
sorority members from 10 to 12 
different houses, said Tyler Olson, 
sophomore in business 
administration and philanthropy 
chairman. The competition started 
April 14 with a party, followed 
by a volleyball tournament 
beginning April 15 and games 
on April 17. The games included 
tricycle relays, mattress races and 
tug-of-war contests. There was 
also a dance contest at Snookie's 

"One of the main things about 
Derby Days is that you get to 
help a good cause, meet a lot of 
people and have a good time," 
he said. "It also brings the guys 
together because it involves the 
whole house."

With the motto, "Help Sigma 
Kappa Lick Alzheimer's 
Disease ," Sigma Kappas increased 
student awareness and concern 
about the neurological disorder. 
The Sigma Kappas sold lollipops 
in the K-State Union during their 
chapter's Week of Giving, Nov. 

"The selling of suckers is a 
national event every Sigma Kappa 
chapter does," said Dari Basore, 
senior in management and Sigma 
Kappa president. "We have a lot 
of girls in the chapter with 
grandparents who have died from 
Alzheimer's disease, so we really 
like doing it. It's something we 
believe in." 

Although raising funds for 
Alzheimer's disease research was 
the chapter's main cause, they 
also supported the Maine Sea 
Coast Mission, Inherit the Earth 
and gerontology. 

"We brainstorm all the time, 
trying to come up with ideas 
that are feasible," Basore said. 

"We try to do things with all 
fourphilanthropies. For the Maine 
Sea Coast Mission, we collected 
dried food, clothes and bath goods 
to help families who worked on 
the East Coast." 

As part of their Inherit the 
Earth and gerontology philanthro- 
pies, Sigma Kappas planted trees 
with a kindergarten class and 
the class' adopted senior citizen. 

"I think it's cool when kids 
can spend time with older people," 
said Kristine Jantz, freshman in 
early childhood education. "They 
have wisdom, knowledge and stories 
to tell. Spending time with them 
basically shows you have an interest 
in them and enjoy their company." 

Jantz said participating in 
community service was important 
to Sigma Kappas. 

"It doesn't matter if you have 
one or four (philanthropies), just 
as long as you're excited and 
enthusiastic about helping out 
through your philanthropy," Jantz

Providing fun, competitive 
games for greek pledges was 
the goal of Pledge Games, Sigma 
Nu's philanthropy. 

The Sigma Nus co-sponsored 
the fifth annual event with the 
Chi Omega sorority on Sept. 27, 
raising more than $3,000 for the 
American Red Cross. 

"The event is always on a 
Saturday," said Tim Bohling, senior 
in pre-medicine and philanthropy 
chairman. "We have track events 
and other small competitions and 
give prizes to the winners." 

The Sigma Nus tried to get 
all the greek houses to participate. 
Bohling said only three sororities 
and two fraternities chose not to 

With so many greek pledges 
together in one place, Bohling 
said the event was a good way to 
meet people. 

"We always do it at the beginning 
of the year when everyone is 
new," he said. "It gives the pledges 
a chance to get to know each 

other and have pride in their 

The Sigma Nus divided their 
philanthropy responsibilities with 
the Chi O's. 

"They (ChiO's) handled getting 
the T-shirts, and we (SigmaNus) 
worked to get sponsors," Bohling 
said. "We had guys coach the 
sororities, while the Chi O's coached 
the fraternities." 

The coaches were responsible 
for boosting their teams' spirits 
and making sure the event ran 

"We organized the team and 
explained the events," said Mike 
Werner, sophomore in business 
administration and Kappa Kappa 
Gamma coach. "We took donuts 
to the house and tried to make 
the event as fun as possible." 

Bohling said the event was 
successful because it raised money 
for the American Red Cross while 
giving pledges the chance to meet 
others. He said each year the 
event improved.

Due to complications with 
liability, the annual Sigma 
Phi Epsilon Fite Nite was canceled 
by the National Fraternal 

"There were injuries at other 
universities, but the most serious 
injury here was a separated 
shoulder," said Mike Harders, 
senior in political science. "I feel 
disappointed and dejected by their 
decision to cancel. I personally 
understand why they did it, but 
I feel bad because it's cutting the 
American Heart Association out 
of a lot of money." 

The chapter looked for another 
service event to replace Fite Nite. 

"I wish we could've done it 
(Fite Nite) again. The University 
really supported us by letting us 
use Ahearn (Field House) and 
Weber Arena," Harders said. 
'Hopefully we can get that same 
support with our next philanthropy, 
and it will be just as successful 
and benefit everyone as much as 
Pte Nite did." 

Chad Becker, senior in 
marketing, was also disappointed 
that the event was cancelled. 

"It (having a philanthropy) 
should be a requirement. It supports 
a good cause and puts all greek 
organizations in a good light," 
he said. "Greek organizations are 
dying as a whole, so we need all 
the good publicity we can get." 

The philanthropy had involved 
men from other fraternities or 
residence halls. The participants 
were divided into weight classes. 
The men, outfitted in boxing 
gear, fought amateur bouts during 
the four-day tournament. 

For the past four years, the 
event grossed $25,000 yearly for 
the American Heart Association. 
The money was used as research 
grants for K-State professors in 
fields such as biology and 

Harders said the fraternity 
wouldn't do anything that didn't 
benefit or have a direct impact 
on K-State.

Inspired by the television show 
"American Gladiators," the 
Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority 
sponsored the Greek Gladiator 
games to raise funds for the Robbie 
Page Memorial. 

Money from the fundraiser 
helped provide play therapy for 
hospitalized children. 

"When we heard about this 
(Greek Gladiator games), we 
thought it was a neat idea," said 
RashaBishara, junior in chemical 
engineering and philanthropy co- 
chairperson. "We heard a lot of 
great comments from the fraternities 
that participated last year. We 
hope it will be just as successful 
this year, as we are hoping to get 
more sororities involved." 

In order to make the event 
comparable to "American 
Gladiators," the Tri Sigmas rented 
equipment and even made some 
of the items needed to make the 
event a success. 

"We rent from the Rec (Chester 

E. Peters Recreation Complex) 
or Ahearn (Field House), to get 
most of the equipment that we 
need," Bishara said. "However, 
we had to make the giant Q- 
Tips for the joust competition. 
Whatever we can't rent, we have 
to make ourselves." 

Even though the Greek 
Gladiator games were only open 
to the sororities and fraternities, 
the members of Tri Sigma found 
organizing a fundraiser was hard 
work and time consuming. 

"We have been planning since 
the beginning of the school year, 
even though the actual event is 
not until February," Bishara said. 
"It is a lot of work, but everyone 
does their part." 

The philanthropy was 
mandatory for all Tri Sigmas. 
However, instead of actually 
competing, the women served 
as coaches to the fraternities that 
were involved. They also made 
sure that the different competitions 

moved smoothly and helped to 
organize the Mr. and Ms. Gladiator 

"We had two girls from the 
house assigned to each fraternity 
that participated," said Kim 
Johnson, senior in sociology. 

"My partner and I made a 
good luck banner and took candy 
over to the fraternity we were 
assigned to," she said. "While at 
the Greek Gladiator competition, 
we also escorted our fraternity 
to their events and helped to get 
them organized." 

Johnson said the house members 
planned to advertise their 
philanthropy extensively and hoped 
they would have increased 
participation from the sororities. 

"Last year we did a good job 
of organizing everything," Bishara 
said. "We hope this year will go 
smoothly as well. If the (greek) 
houses will be enthusiastic about 
it (Greek Gladiators), it should 
be fun."

The Tau Kappa Epsilon's 
Powder Puff football season 
provided sororities the chance 
to have fun while showing their 
team's unity and skills. 

The season started at the 
beginning of the fall semester 
and continued through the end 
of October. Eleven participating 
sororities were divided into two 
leagues based upon their rankings 
from the previous season. In the 
end, the Kappa Alpha Thetas 
triumphed over the Delta Delta 
Deltas to capture the championship 
title. The money raised was donated 
to Special Olympics. 

"Though there is a tremendous 
amount of work to be done to 
pull off this large of a philanthropic 
event, it gives us satisfaction to 
know that our efforts went to a 
good cause," said Heath Funston, 
sophomore in animal sciences 
and industry. 

The philanthropy allowed all 
of theTKEs to participate. Spencer 
Wallace, sophomore in business 

administration, learned some 
lessons during the season from 
being a coach. 

"As a coach, I was forced tc 
deal with some unhappy players 
but with excellent junior ancf 
senior leadership, we were able; 
to finish second overall," Wallaai 

Through the combined effort:} 
of coaches, assistant coaches 
supporters and the player:! 
themselves, the TKE's powdel 
puff football season provided ; 
competitive way to raise money 
for the Special Olympics. Th< 
players spent time practicing t( 
improve their football skills. 

"As a new member of the PL 
Beta Phi football team, I wal 
surprised at how ded icated e veryont 
was," said Randyll Johnson 
freshman in environmental design 
"At times it was difficult getting 
up for our 6:30 a.m. practices 
but with support and en 
couragement from our coachesj 
we had a very profitable season. I

No Pain, 
No Gain 

By Renee Martin 

Look closely at the words, "The 
Taxi." Successfully disguised 
in the name of this triathlon was 
the name of the greek fraternity 
who sponsored it — Theta Xi. 

"When the event first started, 
our fraternity thought we wouldn't 
get people to participate if they 
knew it was put on by greeks," 
said Gary Chisam, junior in 

The triatholon's proceeds were 
donated to Multiple Sclerosis. 

"The participants swim 700 
yards, bike 14.5 miles and run 
3.1 miles," Chisam said. "The 
money is raised through an entry 
fee and donations." 

Unlike most greek phil- 
anthropies that only involved 
other greek houses, The Taxi 
involved people from Kansas 

"We don't really get a lot of 
involvement from the other houses 
since it's such an intense 
competition," Chisam said. "About 
one-fourth of the people come 

from the community, and the 
others are from all over the state." 

Chisam said the event helped 
dispel the stereotype of fraternities 
as party houses. 

"The Taxi shows that we want 
to do something good for the 
community," he said. "We raise 
money for a good cause. This 
shows there are good traits in 

To become involved with other 
greek houses, the Theta Xis started 
a new philanthropy — a giant 
game of Twister. 

Money was raised from the 
$50 entry fee from participating 
groups. The Theta Xis donated 
the money to Big Brothers/Big 
Sisters of Manhattan. Chisam 
said the fundraiser was one that 
required few skills. 

"It's easy to participate," he 
said. "Freshmen and sophomores 
will be in one category, and j uniors 
and seniors will be in another. 
In the finals, the winners will be 
against each other."

Triangle members participated 
in their philanthropy, Cut- 
A-Thon, by working in a beauty 

"The Cut- A-Thon is fun," said 
Wayne Glantz, graduate student 
in mathematics. "It's part of the 
house — you get out into the 
community and do something 

The annual Cut- A-Thon was 
sponsored each fall by the Hair 
Experts Design Team. 

Lin Ward, co-owner of Hair 
Experts, said the event raised 

about $4,000 for the Big Lakes 
Development Center in 

"Big Lakes is a local charity," 
Ward said. "If we're going to do 
a fundraiser, I want it to work for 
my community." 

The Cut-A-Thon lasted for 
12 hours. Ward said the cost of 
haircuts was reduced by half, which 
kept the stylists so busy they 
completed four times the amount 
of work they did in a regular day. 

The Triangle members 
volunteered to work shifts at jobs 

including washing hair and 
sweeping the floor. 

"I usually go every year and 
wash people's hair for about two 
hours," said Garrett McCallum, 
senior in electrical engineering. 

Illene Adams, Big Lakes 
Developmental Center public 
relations supervisor, agreed the 
volunteers were crucial to the 
event's success. 

"We couldn't do it without 
the volunteers," Adams said. "We 
have a wild day. It's long day, 
but worthwhile and rewarding."

Balancing homework, families and jobs 

KrState~Salina students offer a different perspective 

By Renee Martin 

"The most challenging 
part about going back to 
school is trying to juggle 

study time. 1 study at 
night after the kids go to 

bed. My family is my 

first priority, but Vm 
glad to be able to 

attend college . " 
Susan Meyers 

rioping to attract more 
traditional students to 
its campus, K-State- 
Salina adopted the 
Phase V renovation 
plans. Construction was 
scheduled to begin in 
1994. (Photo hy Mike 

ithout her calendar, 
Susan Myers, fresh- 
man in technology, was lost. Jug- 
gling roles as a mother, wife and 
student, Myers constantly relied on 
her calendar for her daily schedule. 

"My calendar is my savinggrace," 
Myers said. "I don't have much 
time to spare, so I write my schedule 

Myers was one of many non- 
traditional students who attended 
K-State-Salina. She squeezed study 
time in between caring for her hus- 
band and two daughters. Nineteen 
years after graduating from high 
school, Myers enrolled in college 

"The most challenging part 
about going back to school is trying 
to juggle study time," Myers said. "I 
study at night after the kids go to 
bed. My family is my first priority, 
but I'm glad to be able to attend 

At K-State-Salina, Myers' situ- 
ation was not unusual. 

"Probably about 50 percent of 
the students here are non-tradi- 
tional," said Bonnie Scranton, di- 
rector of college advancement. "We 
hope in a few years enrollment at 
K-State-Salina will be about one- 
third non-traditional students and 

two-thirds traditional students." 

After the merger with K-State 
in 1991, Scranton said enrollment 
at the Salina campus increased 
about 30 percent. 

"People recognize the K-State 
name and associate it with a quality 
institution," she said. "It makes a big 
difference in getting people to enroll." 

Although K-State-Salina hired 
two admission representatives to 
recruit more high school students, 
Scranton said the school still at- 
tracted non-traditional students. 

"We're visible in the commu- 
nity and are constantly working 
with employers, the Social and Re- 
habilitation Service and the mili- 
tary," Scranton said. "We want 
them to encourage their clients to 
get additional education." 

Myers chose to attend K-State- 
Salina because her daughters, ages 
6 and 9, were both enrolled in 

"You just reach a point when 
you need something else," she said. 
"My daughters are not so depen- 
dent on me anymore. I had to have 
something to do." 

Some students returned to 
school because of unexpected cir- 
cumstances. Marji Martin, sopho- 
more in civil engineering technol- 

ogy, enrolled in college after yeai 
of working for the same company 

"I was in a career and the con 
pany went bankrupt," Martin saic 
"I'm only 42 years old, and I thougr 
I needed to do something with th 
rest of my life." 

Martin balanced her time ht 
tween 1 8 hours of classes and a par i 
time job. 

"I'm trying to earn two associat 
degrees," she said. "I'm up at 5 a.n 
and don't go to bed until midnigh 
If I don't have time for everythinj 
I go without sleep." 

Myers said she was not alwa^ i 
successful in balancing her time. 

"Some days are more hectic tha 
others," she said. "I try to keep t 
my schedule. If I get a curve throw 
at me, I just try to squeeze eveq 
thing in." 

Although her studies took tim 
away from her family, Myers sai 
she was setting an example for h< 

"My third-grader will look at m 
math problems, shake her head an 
say, 'Wow,' " Myers said. "I tell h< 
if she studies now, eventually sh 
will work her way up to these prolj 
lems. I am teaching my childrej 
that learning never stops, no ma 
ter how old you get."

Since 1981, enrollment at the 
Kansas College of Technology was 
sporadic. On May 2, 1991, K- 
State and the Kansas College of 
Technology merged to form the 
Kansas State University-Salina 
College of Technology after a rec- 
ommendation by the Kansas 
Board of Regents and Legislative 
approval was secured. Following 
the merger, enrollment increased 
as expected, but K-State-Salina 
officials hoped that the school 
would attract even more technol- 
ogy students. Enrollment figures 
are averages from fall and spring 
enrollment numbers.

Gary Spani's transition 
from college student to 
professional football player didn't 
loosen his ties to K-State. 

Spani, linebacker for the 
Wildcats from 1975-78, was named 
Kodak ail-American and all-Big 
Eight player in both the United 
Press International and Associated 
Press polls during his senior year. 
After leaving K-State, Spani was 
picked up by the Kansas City 
Chiefs. For 10 years he played 
on the team, until an injury caused 
him to retire in 1988. 

Spani, a Manhattan native, 
often returned to the University 
to visit friends and family and to 
watch the football games. He 
said K-State had a lot to offer 
both on and off the field. 

"K-State gave me the 
opportunity to learn in the 
classroom, as well as a chance to 
play Big Eight football," he said. 

"The opportunity to compete in 
a major collegiate conference would 
make anyone a better player." 

Spani not only kept in contact 
with the football program, but 
was actively involved in the football 
team's search for a new coach in 
1 990. He served on the committee 
that chose Bill Snyder as the 
new coach. 

A resident of Lee's Summit, 
Mo., Spani also kept close ties 
with the Chiefs. He worked in 
the sales and marketing division 
of the franchise, handling major 
corporate accounts for print and 
scoreboard advertising. He 
attributed some of his personal 
success to his experiences at K- 

"My linebacker coach, Dick 
Selcer, inspired me to do my 
best," Spani said. "Playing football 
at a major university definitely 
had a positive effect on me."

United States Congressman 
Pat Roberts said his K-State 
education helped him achieve 
in his career. 

Born in Holton, Kan., Roberts 
graduated from K-State in 1958. 
Majoring injournalismand mass 
communications encouraged 
Roberts to make political 
connections and establish 
supportive friendships. 

"When running for public office, 
you need friends to support what 
you are doing," he said. "I look 
to my K-State friends for that." 

Roberts returned to K-State 
for visits and to help out the 
University whenever he could. 
He supported grants in favor of 
K-State and occasionally worked 
out financial situations with 
University administration. 

"I was back for the 80th 
anniversary of the Interfraternity 
Council," he said. "I also worked 
with President Wefald on behalf 
of K-State." 

Roberts came back in the fall 

of 1992 for a campus visit with 
his daughter who was planning 
to attend K-State. 

On behalf of the University, 
Roberts, a member of the United 
States House of Representatives' 
agriculture committee, supported 
a farm bill that included a grant 
for the Throckmorton Hall 
expansion project. Roberts was 
also a member of the House's 
admission committee. 

The classes Roberts chose 
exposed him to situations that 
benefited him in the long run. 

"My education and hands-on 
experience injournalismand mass 
communications helped me a great 
deal to prepare forpublic relations," 
Roberts said. 

Roberts was proud to be a K- 
State alumnus. He credited many 
of his accomplishments to his 
college experiences. 

"The Kedzie experiences were 
very helpful," he said. "That 
outstanding education headed 
me down the road."

Some students earned money 
for rent and utilities at the 
expense of their grades. 

Colinda Thompson, freshman 
in chemical engineering, balanced 
her time between two jobs and 
classes. Thompson worked on 
campus at McCain Box Office 
and at Hardee's in Aggieville. 
Despite both jobs, she managed 
to find time to study. 

"I do my homework between 
classes and after work in the 
evenings," she said. "I'm doing 
okay, but it gets a little tense." 

Heather White, junior in 
elementary education, also had 
two jobs. White worked at Hardee's 
in Aggieville and at Cactus Jack's. 

"I usually work at Hardee's 
two days a week from 5 a.m.-l 
p.m., go to school, study, work 
at Cactus Jack's until 11 p.m. 
weekdays and study some more," 
White said. "I get most of my 
sleep on weekends." 

Although Danielle Emmel, 
sophomore in apparel and textile 

marketing, had a job, she still 
found time to be involved with 
several student organizations 
including the Fashion Interest 
Group, College of Human Ecology 
committee and American 
Association of Textile Chemists 
and Colorists. 

"It is better for me to stay 
busy or I'll get bored," Emmel 
said. "Sometimes my schedule 
gets cramped up because I have 
to plan my time well, but I prepare 
myself everyday or I'll get behind." 

Balancing time was a skill the 
students learned. 

"I'm lucky I am the type of 
person who doesn't need to study 
a lot," White said, "but it's also 
easier to be distracted because I 
am tired in the evenings when I 
should be studying. I know I'm 
not putting in the effort to get a 
4.0 grade point average." 

Thompson said balancing her 
time was not as difficult as she 
had expected. 

"My classes are okay. Calculus 

was difficult my first semestt 
because I didn't know what t 
expect," Thompson said. "Oth 
than that, I am getting good grades 

Cathy Hill, junior in journalisi 
and mass communications, sa: 
working her jobs at Vanity ar 
Runza helped her perfect h< 
time management skills. 

"I wouldn't study more if 
weren't working because I kno 
how much time I need to stuc 
to get good grades," she said. 

White said she worked to eai 
extra money to pay for bills ar 

"I work because I am a fanat 
with spending money," she sai 
"I also work to have more frienc 
Since I live by myself, Cact 
Jack's has been a life-saver 
seeing faces." 

Hill agreed. 

"Everybody I have met is great ! 
Hill said. "It is fun working tvj 
different jobs. I don't dread workiii 
because I meet a variety of peop ] 
who range in different ages."

Scott Stuckey, executive editor 
of Boys' Life magazine in Irving, 
Texas, said his K-State educa- 
tion gave him the fundamental 
skills necessary for him to suc- 
ceed in his journalism career. 

A 1979 graduate, Stuckey 
returned to K-State for individual 
question and answer sessions with 
students in the A. Q. Miller School 
of Journalism and Mass Com- 
munications. As part of his job, 
Stuckey visited various journal- 
ism schools throughout the na- 

Besides his college classes, 
Stuckey said he learned a lot 
through a summer internship with 
the American Society of Maga- 
zine Editors (ASME). 

"The internship made all the 
difference," he said. "That is when 
I first became interested in magazine 

In addition to his internship, 

Stuckey sharpened his writing 
skills by working as a Collegian 

"It is important to get as much 
writing experience as possible," 
he said, "so you will have a vari- 
ety of articles to present to fu- 
ture employers." 

After graduation, Stuckey used 
his journalism degree to gain writing 
experience with various Kansas 
newspapers before earning his 
master's degree. He said the re- 
porting and writing techniques 
he learned at K-State were the 
most important skills he needed 
in his career. 

"The strong writing training 
K-State had to offer made me 
more marketable to employers," 
he said. "Other journalism schools 
with exceptional reputations don't 
always teach the most practical 
skills that are demanded in magazine

Bill Featherston's rent was cheap. 
Featherston, junior in life 
sciences, paid $90 a month for 
rent and utilities — the cock- 
roaches were free. 

Featherston lived in a large 
house divided into nine different 
bedroom apartments. 

"It was in bad shape," he said. 
"There was only one bathroom 
for all of us. It was so gross, I 
refused to use it." 

After his landlord kicked out 
another tenant for having five 
cockroach nests in his room, 
Featherston decided to move out. 
He found an apartment for only 
$200 a month, but he was not 
able to move in until January. 

While he waited for his new 
apartment, Father Keith Weber 
of St. Isidore's Catholic Church 
let Featherston live in the apart- 
ment above the church for $50. 

He said living at the church 
only had one minor inconvience. 

"One time they had a wedding 
at the church. Since my room 

was the one brides used to get 
dressed in, I had to leave," 
Featherston said. 

Lisa Meuli, senior in applied 
music, didn't share Featherston's 
apartment problems. Her one 
bedroom apartment with two 
balconies cost her and her 
roommate $175 each. 

"I like living off campus a lot 
more than living in the dorms," 
she said. "It's a lot quieter." 

Looking for a quiet place to 
live, Jack and Theresa Taylor 
found the city of Wamego. Jack, 
senior in political science, said 
their neighbors went to bed early. 

He and Theresa, sophomore 
in business administration, paid 
cheap rent in Wamego. 

They lived in a large three- 
bedroom house with extras 
including a dining room and garage 
for only $295 a month. 

"The only bad thing about 
living in such a big house was we 
had to buy more furniture to fill 
it up," he said.

the Ads 
to Find 

By Scott Oberkrom 

Needing a new roommate, 
Mel issa Prenger and Katrina 
Goering placed a classified ad in 
the Collegian. 

"We ran the ad for weeks," 
said Goering, senior in market- 
ing. "We interviewed applicants 
before we made a decision." 

Goering said some applicants 
thought they had the final say as 
to whether or not they were go- 
ing to live in the apartment. 

"They felt it was a first-come, 
first-serve situation," Goering said. 

Goering was unable to be present 
when the final selection needed 
to be made, so Prenger, senior in 
journalism and mass communi- 
cations, chose their roommate. 

"I was nervous about choos- 
ing the roommate," Prenger said. 
"I didn't want to do it by myself." 

Prenger chose Kelli Darting, 
junior in hotel and restaurant 
management. Darting said re- 
sponding to the ad was nerve- 

"I didn't know what to ex- 

pect," Darting said. "I didn't have 
a place to live and I needed one." 

Darting said she was leery about 
responding to an ad, but Prenger 
made her feel at ease. 

"I was nervous at first," Dart- 
ing said. "But my first impres-, 
sion was really good." 

Darting said a strong bond: 
developed between the room- 
mates. She said they worked welll 
together and alternated clean- 
ing duties every week. 

"We have a bulletin board 
and every week we rotate re- 
sponsibilities," Darting said. "One i 
week you vacuum, the next yoi 
do the dishes and after that yoi 
clean the bathroom." 

Goering said finding a room- 
mate through the classified ad; 
wasn't difficult. 

"I would do it again," she said 
"I don't have a problem with it 
But I might be a little more spe- 
cific about characteristics in th( 
ad to cut down on wasted inter-

I think it's a good idea to pat 
an ad in the paper (for a room- 
mate). It lets you find people you 
are compatible with who are not 
your friends. It's better not to live 
with good friends because that 
sometimes puts a strain on the 
relationship. It can ruin friend-

T'he man working at the 
travel plaza on Interstate 70 
knew Caron Citro by name. The 
gas station attendant saw Citro, 
freshman in journalism and mass 
communications, three times a 
week as she filled up her car on 
the way to Manhattan. 

Citro lived with her husband 
in Topeka and commuted to K- 
State for classes. Although the 
drive was 58 miles, Citro used 
her time wisely. 

"I would ask myself questions 
in a tape recorder as I read my 
notes," Citro said. "During my 
drive I would play the tape back 
and try to answer the questions." 

Patricia Sommerfeld, junior 
in accounting, also tried to use 
tapes to study during her hour- 
and-a-half drive. However, she 
said reading her notes during 
the drive was more effective. 

"Reading my notes was a lot 
easier than reading the textbooks," 
Sommerfeld said. "The print in 
the books is too small to read 

while driving." 

Sommerfeld said receiving a 
K-State education was worth her 
144-mile drive from Brookville, 
a town 20 miles west of Salina. 

"I had to make the sacrifice," 
she said. "1 could have gone to 
other schools, but I wanted K- 
State's name behind me." 

The semester before he 
graduated, Kurtis Gardner, senior 
in history, found a rent-free house. 
The only problem was that the 
house was in Shawnee, Kan., 
1 10 miles from Manhattan. 

"My fiancee lives here, so I 
just decided to commute during 
my last semester," Gardner said. 
"I only had classes on Tuesdays 
and Thursdays." 

Gardner's livingarrangement 
saved him money, but he said it 
had disadvantages. 

"I couldn't get involved in 
any activities," Gardner said. "I 
didn't mind too much; I was always 
busy with wedding plans and trying 
to find a job."

Strolling past the pingpong 
tables stacked with merchan- 
dise displaying masking-tape price 
tags, the home furnishings came 
into view. Who wanted to get 
rid of that perfectly good lamp 
or the old chair with a small 
tear? While some students lived 
in furnished apartments, others 
tried saving money by shopping 
at auctions and garage sales for 
home furnishings. 

Blake Picinich, senior in 
business administration, found 
a microwave at an auction. He 
and his roommates decided they 
would all chip in to buy it. 

"Our microwave works just 
as well as a new one," Picinich 
said. "We had a subconscious 
feeling whether it would work 
or whether we were getting ripped 

Picinich said he looked at 
other garage sales for apartment 
furnishings, but items were either 
priced too high or the good things 
were already taken. 

"College students have to settle 

for lower-quality items even though 
they work the same," Picinich 

Becky Delhotal, junior in food 
and nutrition-exercise science, 
went to garage sales searching 
for a coffee table to put in her 

"It's nice to get things at garage 
sales because they are cheap enough 
to do anything you want with 
them, without worrying about 
ruining them," she said. 

Delhotal said she paid $7 for 
the table. 

"The table we bought wasn't 
that expensive — it was cheap 
and a piece of junk, but I didn't 
care since I'm in college," Delhotal 
said. "I suggest students go to 
garage sales, but go to more than 
one to check for better deals. 
These items help students get 
through college. I know how people 
treat their furniture, so garage 
sale items can be good enough." 

However, she said the cheap 
prices were not always worth it. 

"I was looking for a couch, but 

they were too ugly even if they 
were cheap," she said. 

Matt Markel, junior in 
psychology, bought many second- 
hand items, including two tables, 
a television stand and a lamp. 

"They are pretty old and gaudy, 
but they were cheap," Markel 

After searching for a couch at 
a rummage sale, Nancy Sherrer, 
junior in journalism and mass 
communications, said she and 
her roommates found one that 
was inexpensive. 

"It's perfect because you don't 
have to make an investment," 
she said. "It can still serve it's 

Andrew Huff, junior in life 
sciences, bought a chair for $20 
at a garage sale. He said it had 
been re-upholstered for $250, 
which doubled its worth. 

"Sometimes you find an item 
that actually turns out to be worth 
something," Huff said. "My 
roommates thought it was a great

Some students who threw 
parties had headaches before 
the first guests even arrived because 
of the time they spent preparing 
for the event. 

Julie Marshall, senior in 
psychology, said she always took 
proper precautions before hosting 
a Friday night beer party. 

"The last party my roommates 
and I had, I decided I was going 
to make sure nothing was stolen. 
I was going to make darn sure my 
cat was safe from the drunken 
crowd," Marshall said. "I put a 
lock on my bedroom door and 
locked my cat and valuables in." 

Some people had problems 
with strangers joining their parties. 

"I love having parties with 
close friends," said Mary Anne 
Blum, junior in psychology, "but 
when people I don't know start 
showing up, I get uneasy." 

Other people avoided these 
hassles because they had apartment 
leases that didn't allow parties. 
But some students broke the no- 
party rule in their leases. 

"My old lease said absolutely 
no parties and no drugs, but it 
didn't stop us from throwing the 
occasional party," said Maria Paul, 
senior in education. "On one 
occasion, we had a band playing 
and kegs, but the landlord showed 
up and put a halt to the action." 

Those without party restrictions 
in their leases could throw parties 
at any time. Emma Shotton, 
sophomore in fisheries and wildlife 
biology, said this privilege often 
brought damage to their home. 

"The only thing about a party 
at your own place is the fact that 
in the morning you realize how 
people can trash a place," she

Usually, when we have parties, it's a bunch of our 
closest friends, who we trust. The only thing we do to 
make sure that nothing gets broken is take our CDs out 
of the living room and put them in someone's bedroom. 
People want to run the stereo and CDs are the only 

things that ever get broken

The east side of campus is 
the ideal location (for parties), 
just for the simple fact that you 
are near Aggieville. No matter 
how great a party is, everyone 
eventually will wander down to 
see how the 'Ville is hopping. 
When we have a party, it's 
usually a spur of the minute 
kind of thing, so not many 
people know. The place usually 

stays intact.

Noisy neighbors kept the Riley 
County Police Department 
busy during the year. 

"There is no way to track all 
the many, many noise complaints 
we get over the course of time," 
said Sergeant Adam Angst. "We 
have a good number of complaints 
come in about the noise ordinance 
in effect in Manhattan. Noise is 
the most common reason why 
neighbors turn in neighbors." 

BarbaraGray, junior in chemical 
engineering, said she tried to 
keep a peaceful relationship with 
her neighbors. 

"I've never had any real 
problems," Gray said. "Everyone 
has trouble with the neighbor 
•who likes to play loud, obnoxious 
music at four in the morning. 
But I try to keep on good terms 
with the people I live by. It just 
makes things less stressful." 

Some students had neighbors' 
complaints aimed toward them. 

"I had a neighbor who 
complained about my sister and 

me constantly," said Betty (not 
her real name), sophomore in 
social science. "At our apartment 
complex, the lease said, 'No pets, 
no parties, no others,' which was 
fine because we had none of those 

"But this guy who lived 
downstairs complained to the 
management at least three times 
a week. We couldn't make dinner 
or watch TV without being 
harassed," she said. 

Betty said the complaints 

"This guy even went so far as 
to say that We would have to pay 
him off to keep his mouth shut," 
Betty said. "But he soon got his 
( own problem ) — he was arrested 
recently for assaulting his roommate 
with a spatula." 

Too many complaints from 
neighbors caused some landlords 
to evict tenants. Jeff Sockel, senior 
in industrial engineering, said 
three friends at his complex had 
been evicted.

Improbably the most annoying person on my floor. 
It's easy to be disturbed by others. The typical thing to 
do is to call the guy up and tell him to keep it down. It's 

usually a polite situation. 



— Thomas Gross 

sophomore in music 

My neighbors play their Mexican music and turn 
their bass up real loud. I usually go upstairs and ask 
them to turn it down. They're pretty nice and do it. 
Then, the next day or a couple of days later it goes 

back up.

Unusual pets provide companionship 

and educational opportunities 

By Belinda Potter 

im Moos, junior in psy- 
chology, placed live rats 
near her "Baby." But the rats did 
not live for long, for as soon as they 
were placed next to her, Baby at- 
tacked and strangled them. 

Baby, a six-foot 
Burmese python, lived 
in a large aquarium. 
However, Moos said 
her pet preferred to be 
in places other than 
her cage. 

"She likes any 
place warm," Moos 
said. "She loves being 
in my bathtub when I 
fill it with warm wa- 

Once, after a long 
night of studying, 
Moos fell asleep in her 
waterbed. In the 
morning, she was sur- 
prised to discover Baby 
in her bed. 

"I didn't even 
know she was there 
until the next morning," she said. "I 
got up and she wasn't in her cage. I 
started looking around, and I fi- 
nally found her up at the foot of my 

Not even a year old, Baby was 
growing rapidly. 

"This type of python may grow 
up to 30 feet," Moos said. 

Caring for Baby was easy, she 
said. After Baby shed her skin, Moos 
put body lotion on the snake's body. 

"She just slithers through my 
fingers," she said. 

Some students perferred pets 

with fur. After Aaron Daily, senior 
in environmental design, visited a 
pet shop, he became interested in 
furry, gray chinchillas from South 
America. A year later, he bought 
two of the rodents and named them 

In their attempt to find unusual pets, students oftened traveled 
to Pets 'n' Stuff, which was located in the Manhattan Town 
Center Mall. The unique marking of the carpet chameleons 
pushed their cost to $ 1 00 at pet stores. (Photo by J. Matt Rhea) 

Chip and Chelsea. More chinchil- 
las were on the way because Chelsea 
was pregnant. 

Chinchillas had mouse-like ears, 
squirrel-like tails and were famous 
for their soft fur. Daily said chin- 
chillas were friendly pets. 

"My dog even loves them," Daily 
said. "The chinchillas jump on my 
cocker spaniel's back all the time." 

He kept the animals in a 5-by-5 
foot cage. 

"There are a lot of levels in the 
cage," Daily said. "Since they are 
originally from the mountains of 

South America, they like to climb 
around a lot." 

To keep their fur soft and fluffy, 

chinchillas required unusual care. 

Daily put a bowl of dry lava dust 

into the cage. The animals rolled 

around in the dust, 

which absorbed excess 

oil off their fur. 

Mike Pisani, senior 
in park resources man- 
agement, didn't worry 
about keeping his pet's 
fur soft — especially 
since his pet was an 

Measuring over 
three feet long, Igor 
the iguana was only 
three years old. Pisani 
fed his pet a daily diet 
of fruits and veg- 

"When he gets a 
little bigger, I'll start 
feeding him mice," 
Pisani said. 

Pisani bought Igor 
for a high school class project. 

"I needed a critter for environ- 
mental education," he said. "Part of 
the class focused on sharing our 
pets with first-graders." 

Pisani's sister enrolled in the 
same high school class, and also 
used Igor for her proj ect. This meant 
Igor had to temporarily stay with 
Pisani's parents. 

"My mom wasn't crazy about 
the idea (of keeping Igor)," Pisani 
said. "Now, at least she talks to 
Igor — but she won't ever touch 

"M31 mom wasn't crazy 
about the idea (of keep-
